influenced by deliciousness

yesterday’s dinner was influenced once again by a blog post i read early yesterday morning from my friend, emily.

seriously, this always happens to me! good thing i follow a lot of delicious food blogs to get ideas and keep a stocked fridge + pantry so i actually have ingredients to make these meals on a whim.

yesterday, i saw that emily had posted about some veggie stuffed peppers that she made recently.

well what do you know?

i had two green bell peppers sitting in our refrigerator.

and some ground turkey that i needed to use up.

and after some scrounging i found a half used bag of trader joe’s fire roasted corn.

and this.

i bought these philadelphia cooking cremes (i got 2 of them) when i had a crazy coupon deal and ended up paying like $0.13 for each of them. and i love cream cheese. and i’m a semi-lazy cook. so of course these made sense for me to try!

(let’s pretend they didn’t sit in the refrigerator for almost a month, ok?)

anyway, i had an idea and i ran with it!

i hollowed out my peppers (badly).

cooked up the stuffing!

  • ground turkey with taco seasoning
  • black beans
  • fire roasted corn from trader joe’s
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ~1/2 cup short grain brown rice
  • 1/2 container philadelphia santa fe blend cooking creme

then i stuffed that in my peppers (i had lots of leftover stuffing which will be used again in lunches this week!).

peppers went in the over (covered with tin foil) at 350* for 20 minutes and were then promptly devoured!

i love how these are absolutely packed full of vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains. my favorite kind of meal! 🙂
