Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers
Since the nights are starting to get cooler I decided that it was time to dust off the old Crock pot. Thanks to my wonderful mother for sharing this recipe! These are not only extremely tasty and filling but also super easy to make! Below are the ingredients and recipe:
1.25 pounds extra lean (99%) ground turkey (allow 1/4lb per pepper)
1 1/2c instant brown rice
Diced quarter of an onion
Dash of Salt, pepper, garlic powder
1 can tomato soup
Couple squirts of ketchup(optional)
Mix ground turkey with diced onion, salt, pepper, garlic powder and one third can of tomato soup.
Cut off tops of peppers and clean out insides.
Stuff each pepper with turkey mixture.
Put another third of the can of soup into the bottom of Crock pot with 1/4 cup water.
Place peppers into Crock pot and add remaining soup on top. I like to squirt ketchup on top also.
Cover and cook til peppers are soft (on low for 7 hours or on high for 4-5 hours).
You can use same recipe and cook in 350 oven covered for an hour-hour and half.
Another side note, if you own a slow cooker but do not own slow cooker liners(pictured above), go purchase them now! Makes the clean up 10x faster.
