Turkey & Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Turkey, quinoa, corn, beans & peppers.. oh my. This recipe doesn’t take more than 40 minutes to make, and because I wound up with 8 peppers, I don’t have to think twice about hassling with dinner this week! Score! I got all of my ingredients from trader joe’s and cheated in that I got the frozen pre-made quinoa, “reduced guilt” guacamole, and some mild pico.. but hey, I’m all about making things as easy as possible! I hope that you love this simple, easy recipe as much as I do!
