- The rice will always take the longest! Add rice and water into pot until boiling point. Then, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 to get it percolating. (It’s time for the perculator, it’s time for the perculator. Dewwwww Dewwwww! Ok, ok, ok I am back!)
- Ground turkey is tricky to cook, if you don’t know what you’re doing. I’m not going to leave you hangin’ playa! Chop onions, garlic clove and season ground turkey with black pepper, onion powder and Lawrys at the very beginning! Ground turkey has to absorb that flavor or it will be bland. If you’re using ground beef, feel free to season throughout the browingine process. Stir constantly who mincing the meat.
- While the rice and meat cooking, you can prepare your green peppers. You can either chop the green peppers in half through the stem or cut the top off. It is all a matter of preference. I prefer them cut horizontally as they seem to cook evenly and are easier to season. Drizzle peppers with olive oil, salt and pepper to ensure they have flavor, too. Place on glass or non stick dish with opening face up.
- Mix rice, ground meat, tomato sauce and fill the green peppers with the mixture. Cover them with aluminum foil and place in oven for 25 minutes. add cheese for the last 5 minutes for the finishing touches.
- Serve on swanking table setting with garnish of your choice. Oh, you fancy huh?!
