Ingredients

  • 2 small packages mini peppers - organic if possible or one large package
  • 1 pound ground turkey - or lean grass fed beef
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tbs. chili powder
  • 1/2- 1 cup organic salsa
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tbs. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4-1/3 cup shredded cheese - optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Slice the peppers length wise, then remove the stem and seeds. Place on a baking sheet that has been lined with foil or parchment paper for easy clean up (spray with coconut oil to ensure they don't stick - not required but recommended).
  • Place peppers in the oven for 12 minutes.
  • Place a large skillet over medium heat. Spray the skillet with coconut oil (or add 1/2 tbs. coconut oil and allow to melt). Add ground turkey and allow to cook through, breaking up the turkey into small pieces.
  • Cook about 7 minutes, until no longer pink in any place.
  • Add the garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, organic salsa and pinch of salt. Allow to cool slightly while waiting on peppers to finish.
  • Stuff the peppers with a small spoon once they come out of the oven. Top with grated cheese (optional) or just sprinkkle with chopped fresh cilantro.
  • If you add the cheese, turn on the oven's broiler. Place the nachos under the broiler for 2 minutes (use foil to line the baking sheet with if you are going to use the broiler).
  • Serve hot or at room temperature.
