  • 1 oz. butter, for greasing the baking dish
  • 4 (1 1/4 lbs) green bell peppers
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1 (4 oz.) yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef or ground turkey
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 cup crushed tomatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
  • 1 cup sour cream or mayonnaise
  • 4 oz (2 cups) leafy greens


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a 9x12 baking dish. Cut the peppers in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Place the peppers in the baking dish, and drizzle half of the olive oil on top of the peppers.
  • Heat the rest of the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and fry until soft. Add the ground beef and fry until no longer pink. Then add the chili, cumin, salt, pepper and crushed tomatoes. Simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in half the cheese. Stuff the peppers with ground beef mixture, sprinkle remaining cheese on top and place in oven.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and leafy greens.
