assorted bell peppers (green, red, yellow), cut in half lengthwise, stems and seeds removed
pound ground turkey
cup frozen whole kernel corn
cup rinsed drained canned black beans
jar (16 ounces) Pace® Chunky Salsa
cup crumbled tortilla chips
cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Heat the oven to 425°F. Place the pepper halves, cut-side up, into a 13x9x2-inch baking dish.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the pepper halves are tender.
While the pepper halves are baking, season the turkey as desired. Cook the turkey in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until cooked through, stirring often to separate meat. Stir in the corn, beans, salsa and tortilla chips and cook until the mixture is hot, stirring occasionally and lightly mashing some of the beans with a fork.
Spoon about 1/2 cup turkey mixture into each pepper half. Sprinkle with the cheese and serve with your favorite taco toppings.
