1poundlean ground turkey
8ouncesbutton mushrooms, finely chopped
½cupwhite queso dip
Mexican hot sauce, to taste
1poundbag mini rainbow peppers (or mild jalapeno peppers), halved and seeded
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Place a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add a bit of oil to the bottom of the skillet, then add the ground turkey and mushrooms. Cook, stirring often, for about 6-8 minutes until the turkey is cooked through.
Drain the mixture by placing a large plate or lid over the skillet and pouring off any liquid. Add the taco seasoning, queso, and hot sauce to taste, mixing until well-combined.
Arrange the mini peppers in a single layer on the baking sheet, cut side up. Use a small spoon to fill each pepper with the turkey mixture. Top with cheese. At this point, you can bake them right away or cover them and store in the fridge until ready to bake, up to 12 hours.
Bake for 15-16 minutes until the peppers are tender and the cheese is melted.
Remove from the oven and top with Avocado Ranch and other toppings, as desired.
Make-ahead option: the peppers can be assembled up to 12 hours ahead of time and stored on a tray in the fridge until ready to bake.
