Picante Turkey “Nachos” With Peppers

February 2, 2019

Whether your team is playing on Sunday or not, Super Bowl Sunday is one of the most celebrated days of the year. House parties, games, Halftime Show, drinks, and LOTS of food. But instead of packing on the calories with pizza, fatty dips, and other foods that aren’t easy on the waistline, I’ve created this recipe that’s tasty AND guilt-free. Kicking the chips for bell pepper strips adds a nutritious, low-carb spin on your typical nachos. Bell peppers are high in vitamins and antioxidants and I happen to love them. More importantly, this Super Bowl snack is very filling, so you won’t find yourself reaching for the junk food.


·       1 tbs olive oil

·       1 lb ground turkey breast

·       1 clove garlic (minced)

·       1/3 onion (minced)

·       1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

·       1 tsp garlic powder

·       1 tsp cumin powder

·       1 tsp chili powder

·       1 tsp sea salt

·       1 cup salsa (I use Sunset Salsa – FL local and amazing!)

·       1/4 cup chicken broth

·       3 bell peppers

·       1 cup black beans

. 1 avocado

. 2 limes

·       1 jalapeno

·       chopped cilantro for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400F and line a large baking try with parchment paper.

  2. Pour olive oil skillet over medium heat.

  3. Add onion, garlic and cilantro and cook for about 2 minutes, add ground turkey, salt, garlic powder, chili powder, cumin and cook for 4 to 5 minutes until meat is completely cooked through. Add 1/4 cup of chicken broth, mix well and simmer.

  4. Cut and arrange mini peppers in a single layer, cut-side up close together.

  5. Fill each with cooked ground turkey mixture, then top with beans, salsa, and thinly sliced jalapeños.

  6. Bake 8 to 10 minutes.

  7. Remove from oven and top with lime juice, avocado, and cilantro. Serve immediately and ENJOY!

My Fantasy Football team really sucked this year, but my Super Bowl snacks will not! Be sure to follow me and check out my stories on the Gram to see what else I’m cooking up!
