What’s so great about this tasty skillet recipe?

I definitely have a love for stuffed bell peppers. My kids, not so much. I think it has something to do with all that bell pepper. It’s awkward to cook and can be even more awkward to eat. Thanks to SEEDS OF CHANGE™ Quinoa, Brown & Red Rice with Flaxseed, this unstuffed bell pepper skillet recipe cooks up so quick and easy and is totally kid-approved! I always stock up on SEEDS OF CHANGE™ products for convenient lunches and dinners when I’m grocery shopping at Albertsons. You can find SEEDS OF CHANGE™ full line of flavors in the rice aisle.

Not only is this meal simple and flavorful, it’s jam packed with protein and fiber. Feel free to use any type of ground meat that suits your taste. I used extra lean ground turkey, but ground beef, bison or chicken would also be great.

HOW TO MAKE THIS EASY UNSTUFFED BELL PEPPER SKILLET DISH

On those hectic nights when my family’s craving a yummy warm meal on the table after coming home from one of the many activities that the kiddos have going on, enter the UNstuffed Bell Pepper Skillet!

To start, brown ground turkey and stir in some of the seasonings. Once that is cooked, transfer it to a plate and set aside. Next, get the bell peppers and onion cooking. When those are soft, add in the garlic, tomatoes and the remainder of the seasonings.

For this dish to be speedy quick, I used SEEDS OF CHANGE™ Quinoa, Brown & Red Rice with Flaxseed. Only 90 seconds in the microwave and you’re well on your way to a delicious, nutritious and convenient meal. SEEDS OF CHANGE™ is all about helping more people enjoy real food, grown from a seed.
