Step 3: Now comes the preparation of the the Sweet Bell Peppers. You first cut the top off. Then you cut in half so that you have the widest remaining pieces. Then you scrap the ribs and seeds out and you then you have a good “chip” for the nachos.

Step 4: Build the Nachos. Place all the prepped sweet bell peppers on a baking sheet (oven should be preheated to 425deg). Put a portion of the cooked ground turkey on each bell pepper. Then a portion of the black bean & corn mixture. Then sprinkle cheese over all of it. Put it in the oven for 15 minutes

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
