Healthy Stuffed Pepper Recipes
Find healthy, delicious stuffed pepper recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Turkey Enchilada Poblano Peppers
In this healthy take on a turkey enchilada recipe, we stuff everything into a roasted poblano pepper shell rather than tortillas to pack an extra serving of veggies into this meal. If you can’t find poblano peppers, you can substitute green bell peppers instead……………..

Squash-Stuffed Roasted Poblano Peppers
When fresh, poblanos have a wonderful, somewhat sweet heat that makes a terrific vessel for rich-tasting butternut squash stuffing. Accompanied by corn tortillas or rice and beans, this makes a special vegetarian entree. Most of the preparation can be done in advance and the recipe can easily be doubled. Look for dark green poblanos about 5 inches long, with broad shoulders at the stem, tapering to a pointy tip. Wash your hands thoroughly after removing the seeds or wear rubber gloves; most of the chile oils are found in the seeds and connective membranes………………..

Tuna-Stuffed Peppers
These tuna-stuffed peppers are ubiquitous in delis all over Susa, Italy………..
