large orange bell pepper
tablespoon vegetable oil
large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
clove garlic, minced
teaspoons chili powder
pound 85% lean ground turkey
cup Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Organic Chicken Broth or Swanson® Natural Goodness® Chicken Broth
cup Pace® Picante Sauce
cup uncooked couscous
cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Set the oven to 375°F. Cut the tops off the peppers. Remove and discard the cores and seeds. Reserve the pepper tops. Using a sharp knife, carve a Jack O'Lantern face into each pepper. Place the peppers upright in an 8x8x2-inch baking dish. Chop the carved-out pieces of pepper and reserve.
Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, reserved chopped pepper and chili powder and cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Add the turkey and cook until the turkey is cooked through, stirring often to separate meat.
Stir the broth and picante sauce in the skillet and heat to a boil. Stir in the couscous and remove the skillet from the heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes or until the couscous is tender.
Spoon the turkey mixture into the peppers. Sprinkle with the cheese. Top with the reserved pepper tops.
Bake for 40 minutes or until the peppers are tender.
