This stuffed peppers recipe is healthy and affordable and the best part it’s super easy to make. To give it a healthier spin, I replaced ground beef with ground turkey and used brown rice & quinoa instead of white rice. I even just grabbed the :90 second microwaveable rice to keep it simple.

It truly is the easiest meal. You throw together an easy filling and spoon it into peppers and bake!
