Jalapeno Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers

I’m always striving to create simple recipes like this jalapeño, ground turkey and onion stuffed in bell peppers. They are easy to cook and utilizing less ingredients. If you are like me, I prefer to spend more time enjoying my meals with friends and family than in the kitchen. Hopefully, you already have most of the ingredients at home.

 2 large bell peppers (green or red), cut half length wise, core and seeds removed
