Ali's Turkey-Stuffed Red Peppers

This recipe is delicious ~ the pepper is soft, and the mixture inside is so tasty. Tip: If you use a smaller pepper than the one pictured here (which was so huge and funny-looking I just had to try it), you will probably have enough filling for a second pepper. Made this for company recently and it was a hit!
