Original recipe makes 6 stuffed peppers Change Servings
  • PREP

    15 mins
  • COOK

    1 hr 10 mins

    1 hr 25 mins


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Arrange the bell peppers in a casserole dish with the cavities facing upwards.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the turkey in the hot oil until completely browned, about 5 minutes. Stir the onion into the turkey; season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir the mixture for 3 minutes. Add the corn, tomatoes, thyme, rosemary, and fennel to the turkey; stir. Pour the water over the mixture and add the rice; mix. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Stir the barbeque sauce through the mixture; remove the skillet from the heat.
  3. Spoon enough of the turkey mixture to fill each of the bell peppers about 1/3 of the way full. Divide about half of the feta cheese among the peppers, creating a layer of cheese atop the turkey mixture. Fill the peppers with the remaining turkey mixture and top with the remaining feta cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the peppers are tender, about 45 minutes.

I couldn't bring myself to add BBQ sauce because the thought of BBQ sauce and feta was just too weird for me me so I made them more Italian flavored by leaving out the BBQ sauce and corn. I used fresh tomatoes so the liquid from cooking the tomatoes down was plenty to keep the turkey from drying it. I also added chopped brown mushrooms, fennel, fresh Italian parsley, thyme, and red pepper flakes. Just prior to baking I pressed a ball of mozzarella into the middle for a little cheesy surprise. I would definitely make them the same way because they turned out great.

Not at all a fan of fennel. Pretty decent other than that, but I cannot get past that flavor!

Very good! The ingredients all came together nicely. I did make a handful of changes. I left out the corn and replaced it with chopped fresh mushrooms. Added garlic salt and a couple tablespoons of worcestershire to season the ground turkey. I also went with a half cup of rice and probably could have gone to 3/4 cup.

Thought this was delicious! Made it more healthy & tastier by: Reducing olive oil to 1 tbsp. Adding 2 cloves garlic (minced) with onion Replacing water with low sodium chicken broth Removing corn Replacing diced tomatoes with fresh sliced grape tomatoes (about 20) Removing fennel/ replaced with 1/2 tsp. of cumin Added large bunch of fresh chopped basil Replaced white rice with brown rice (meant adding at that point 2 cups of chicken broth & simmering 45 min in total vs. 15) Removing bbq sauce. To speed up time that I lost from changing rice, I cooked at 350 convection roast for 30 min. Turned out perfect & I will definitely make this again!

Excellent, and contrary to what others may say, pretty easy to throw together. I left out the fennel seeds and replaced the feta with a smaller amount of shredded sharp cheese because that is what I had. Already planned to make this again. It will make more filling than 6 peppers.

I tried this last night for the first time. the feta smelled amazing when it was cooking. I think next time I would add a little garlic (just because I am a garlic fan and I think it would add a good taste)

This was a great mid week dinner! Not the fastest meal to put together but it was worth it. I added fresh garlic, chili paste, fresh spinach and fresh diced tomatoes as I didn't have canned diced tomatoes. As a side dish, I added Honey Corn bread and had many compliments! Will make again!!!
