Instructions

Wash produce before use

1

Roast the bell peppers

Heat the broiler, if using to char the bell peppers.
On the stovetop directly over a flame, or on a sheet pan under the broiler, roast the bell peppers, turning frequently, until blistered and charred all over, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Scrape off the charred skin, if desired; cut the peppers in half lengthwise and remove the ribs and seeds.
While the peppers roast and cool, prepare the turkey-bean filling.

2

Make the turkey-bean filling

  • Cut a small corner from the ground turkey packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Peel and coarsely chop the onion.
  • Rinse the black beans.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro for garnish.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the turkey, onion, and mild chile spice blend, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until the turkey is lightly browned but not yet cooked through and the onion starts to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the beans and tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the turkey is cooked through and the beans are warm, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the pepper halves to individual plates and spoon in the turkey-bean filling. Drizzle with the vegan cheese blend, garnish with the cilantro, and serve.
