Stuffed Taco Peppers

I bought giant green bell peppers at the farmer's market last week and I happened to have a pack of ground turkey.  Our neighbor also dropped by that week with some zucchini from her garden.  I've been meaning to post my stuffed peppers recipe, but this was way better.

Stuffed Taco Peppers
from Oh Sweet Basil

2 green bell peppers
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 packet taco seasoning (I used about half, but could have tolerated more)
1 small zucchini, diced
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Fat-free sour cream

Heat a small skillet over medium heat.  Add a little olive oil and saute the zucchini until tender, about 2-3 minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside.  Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the ground turkey.  Cook for 6-8 minutes, breaking apart the meat as it cooks.  Add the taco seasoning, stir to combine and allow to cook through, another 2-3 minutes.  Heat the oven to 400F.  Cut each pepper in half lengthwise and clean out the seeds and rib meat.  Fill with taco meat, zucchini and top with cheese.  Bake 15-20 minutes and remove from oven.  Serve with salsa and sour cream.
