Serves: 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 55 minutes


  • ½ pound ground wild turkey
  • 4 bell peppers
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked pepper
  • ½ cup water, separated
  • ½ cup chopped red bell peppers
  • ½ cup frozen corn
  • ½ cup Original Rotel tomatoes
  • ½ cup black olives
  • Half package taco seasonings
  • 1 cup shredded Colby jack cheese
  • Chopped parsley, for garnish


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. In a pan, combine wild turkey, salt, pepper, ¼ cup of water and cook until water is evaporated, breaking up ground turkey into small pieces.

3. Transfer meat to a bowl, and combine with ½ cup of diced red bell pepper, ½ cup of frozen corn, ½ cup of Rotel tomatoes, ½ cup of black olives, half package of taco seasoning, shredded cheese and ¼ cup of water.

4. Slice tops off red bell peppers, reserving tops, and discard pith and seeds. Cover a small baking pan with foil and line peppers inside, cut-side up. Fill peppers with the turkey mixture and sprinkle with parsley. Cover with bell pepper “lids” and bake in a 400-degree oven for 45 minutes.
