foodie Friday...stuffed peppers

I've made stuffed peppers a lot. I probably started out with a recipe at some point, but it has definitely evolved over the years. 

I never thought I would be the person that cooks without a recipe, but I am kind of turning into that person. I know the basics of recipes I have made over and over, and I seem to change them a little each time. I made stuffed peppers a few days ago, and they were so good.

peppers (green and red)-6 total
ground turkey- about 1 pound
instant brown rice (i usually use quinoa, but i didn't have any on hand)-4 servings
1 large can diced tomatoes
garlic salt
minced onion
spinach, onion, mushroom (i keep a small ziploc of this pureed combo in the freezer to use in eggs. it was probably about 1/4 c total but really added a lot to the mix)
cheese (if desired. i skip it)

1. brown ground turkey with dash of garlic salt and minced onion
2. cook rice according to directions
3. add spinach mix to ground turkey
4. mix cooked rice, diced tomatoes, ground turkey and simmer
5. wash and cut tops off peppers
6. scoop mixture into peppers
7. bake at 350* for 20 minutes
***top with cheese lat 5 minutes if you use cheese
