Stuffed Pepper Dip

5 from 1 vote
A great addition to any party! The filling from my favorite stuffed pepper recipe with a little extra cheese makes for a perfectly scoopable dip.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 8 cups

Ingredients
  

  • 1 box Rice-A-Roni® Spanish Rice, or ½ cup of any kind of rice, prepared accordingly
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes, I use cherry and Sunburst tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup onion, diced
  • ½ tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 cups diced peppers, assorted colors (approximately 1 ½ peppers)
  • 1 can black beans, 15.25 oz
  • 1 can corn, 15.25 oz
  • 1 can green chiles, 4oz
  • 2 cups reduced-fat Mozzarella, shredded
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Sturdy tortilla chips, for serving

Instructions
 

  • Prepare rice according to package directions in large saucepan, adding diced tomatoes to the mix. Set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and saute for 5 minutes.
  • Add ground turkey and heat until no longer pink and slightly browned. Make sure the turkey is in the smallest pieces possible - you want to be able to scoop it!
  • In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, prepared rice mix, diced peppers, black beans, corn, and green chiles. Stir to combine.
  • Add cheese, crushed red pepper, cumin, salt and pepper and stir to combine. If your cheese isn't melting as much as you'd like, just throw the mix back in a large saucepan and heat until the cheese is melted and thoroughly combined.
  • Store covered in the fridge for up to a week.

Notes

  • This makes about 8 cups, but I don't know how many servings that amounts to. Maybe for you that's two servings. I'm not about to tell you how to live your life.
  • To reheat, bake for 10 minutes at 350° F or pop it in the microwave for a few minutes.
