I came up with this recipe using gluten-free versions of the canned soups for the sauce. I grew up eating stuffed cabbage and stuffed peppers, so this recipe is a definite comfort food for me. I like to use different colored peppers. The sauce is the perfect ending to a wonderful dish! Enjoy!

How to Make Over-Stuffed Peppers

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large pot, with boiling water, blanche each pepper for 3-5 minutes, just to soften the flesh a little bit. Remove each pepper gently from the water, using tongs. Place the peppers in a rectangular casserole dish. (I like to first coat the dish with some olive oil, to prevent sticking).
  • 2Saute onion and garlic in a large pan just until softened. Add ground turkey and cook until done.
  • 3Add cooked rice to the turkey mixture. Add some salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well.
  • 4Stuff each pepper with the turkey mixture, pressing down to make sure each one is filled to the brim.
  • 5Make the sauce: Open each can and put in a bowl or pot. Mix well. Pour some sauce over each stuffed pepper. Bake in oven on 350 degrees F, for about 30-45 minutes or until done.
