Mix all of the seasonings together and set aside. Store extra seasoning in a small jar. You'll use it in other recipes
Grill the Stuffed Peppers
Heat the grill up to 350 degrees indirect heat. For gas grills, turn off the burners under the the spot where you will set the cast iron. For Kamado grills, add a plate setter.
Cut the peppers in half from top to bottom so they lay nice and flat in the cast iron skillet
In a skillet, cook the ground turkey until it is brown and cooked through. Add the homemade taco seasoning and mix.
In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, beans, rice, salsa, and 1 ½ cups of the cheese.
Add the ground turkey mixture to the bell peppers and and top with the remaining ½ cup of cheese.
Place the cast iron skillet on the grill grate for 30 minutes.
Meal Prep Instructions | Precook the meat and the rice ahead of time and place in containers in the refrigerator. Make the taco seasoning ahead of time as well. Doing these three steps will allow you to simply toss the ingredients together in a bowl, stir and stuff for a meal that is ready to put on the grill in under 5 minutes. Meal Prep Lunches | The filling of these Peppers was so good that we made an extra batch to serve without peppers for the next week's lunches. The taste is incredible!! Freezer Friendly | Place them on a sheet pan, cover, and freeze for 6-8 hours. Remove from sheet pan and place them in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag. They will stay good in the freezer for 3-4 months as long as they are sealed well.
Reheating Instructions | Reheat by microwaving for a couple of minutes in the microwave. Watery Stuffed Peppers | Normally, if you make stuffed peppers and they are watery, it's because of the rice. It's important to cook the rice ahead of time, so you don't have to add extra liquid to the peppers. Otherwise, that extra liquid will make them watery. Less Crisp Peppers | Since these will stay crisp, if you prefer them to be softer, boil them for 2-5 minutes before stuffing to make them less crisp. Cooking Meat | Traditionally, stuffed peppers DO NOT cook the meat beforehand. We prefer to cook it first to ensure that there is uncooked meat that could cause food borne illness.
