Bell Pepper Nachos - without all the carbs from the chips!

This Bell Pepper Nachos recipe has less than 300 calories per serving. Instead of using chips to scoop up tasty toppings, these use thick slices of bell pepper! We love Mexican food so I had to share! Would you try it???

Ingredients:
Nonstick cooking spray
¼ medium onion chopped
8 oz raw 93% lean ground turkey
1 tsp Taco Seasoning Blend (see separate recipe for Taco Seasoning Blend)
¼ cup water
1 medium yellow bell pepper cut into 1-inch wide slices
1 medium orange bell pepper cut into 1-inch wide slices
¼ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 medium jalapeño seeds and veins removed, sliced (optional)
½ cup pico de gallo (or fresh tomato salsa)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Heat medium saucepan, lightly coated with spray, over medium-high heat.

Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.

Add turkey; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until turkey is no longer pink.

Add Taco Seasoning and water. Mix well; cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes, or until water evaporates.

Arrange peppers in an oven-proof baking dish; top with turkey mixture and cheese.

Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, or until cheese melts.

Divide pepper mixture evenly between two serving plates.

Top with jalapeños (if desired) and pico de gallo; serve immediately.
