Stuffed Green Peppers ... Stuffed Bell Peppers. Ever wonder what's the difference? Green peppers are nothing more than unripened bell peppers. Ripened bell peppers are red, orange or yellow. Green peppers are less sweet and more bitter than ripened bell peppers which many people prefer. But this recipe will work for stuffed green peppers or stuffed bell peppers. Try it both ways and see which way you like it the best. But keep in mind that using green peppers will give you more consistent results since ripened bell peppers can vary in taste.
A feature that makes this stuffed peppers recipe a very simple one is that you don't need to parboil the green peppers. It's a big time saver.

The number of stuffed peppers this recipe makes obviously depends on the size of the green peppers you use. I used green peppers approximately three inches in diameter and made 10 stuffed peppers. You can use any size.

Stuffed Green Peppers Recipe (Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe)
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Ground Turkey - I used ground turkey breast for the stuffed peppers recipe example. It's more expensive but less fat and calories. I actually think the less expensive regular ground turkey tastes better.

  3. Put the diced onions and olive oil in a large deep frying pan. Fry the onions using medium heat until they start to soften.
     
  4. Add the ground turkey, Worcestershire Sauce, Adobo, and coriander. Keep mixing and chopping the ground turkey until it is cooked and in fine pieces.
     
  5. Place the Quinoa in the frying pan and mix it in thoroughly. When you're done it should look like the stuffing in the picture below. If you use regular ground turkey instead of ground turkey breast it will look a little darker

  6. Stuff the peppers with the mixture. Pack it good and tight to about ¼ from the top.
     
  7. Sprinkle some cheddar cheese on the top each stuffed pepper. 
  8. Put some ketchup on the top of each pepper
  9. Sprinkle seasoned bread crumbs on the top of each stuffed green pepper. Your almost ready to pop them in the oven. The stuffed peppers should look like the picture below at this point:

  10. Add I cup of water to the bottom of the baking dish and cover with aluminum foil. This is how you get around parboiling the green peppers. The mixture was hot when you stuffed the peppers because it was right out of the frying pan. The steam generated by the water added to the bottom of the baking dish is trapped by the aluminum foil and steams the peppers while they bake.
