Turkey Taco Stuffed Peppers

Looking for some new "taco Tuesday" inspiration this week?! Step outside of your taco shell comfort box and give these taco turkey stuffed peppers a try! They are healthy, easy and totally satisfying. They even have a surprise ingredient...pumpkin!

The pumpkin adds a sneaky boost of nutrition and depth of flavor. Pumpkin provides fiber, which promotes gastrointestinal health along with satisfaction, and vitamin A to assist with eye health. The best part is that my family never even knew it was in there!

Utilizing peppers instead of taco shells is a nutrient dense, low carb way to enjoy tacos. Bell peppers provide a ton of immune boosting vitamin C as well as other antioxidants to help you stay well this winter.

I hope you and your family enjoy this healthy twist to taco night in your house!

      Hi Gale, I am sure that would be just as delicious as long as it is pureed squash. I hope it turns out for you.
