Today, I have a new recipe that I’m really excited to share with you because I’ve always been a fan of stuffed peppers. This Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Stuffed Peppers recipe is so versatile since you can stuff your peppers with lots of different ingredients, such as rice, beans, veggies, and meat.

I chose to make my stuffed peppers with only sweet potatoes and ground turkey because those were the ingredients I had on hand. My husband and I went to Costco a few weeks ago and bought about 4 pounds of ground turkey because I love it, and the price was really good.

There is so much you can do with ground turkey. So, it’s a good idea to buy more than 2 pounds and keep some on hand. When I buy it, I always use a good lean ground turkey so that my meals will be healthier.

These Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Stuffed Peppers are something I love to make and freeze individually for later.

They taste really good the next day. I really recommend making them ahead and keeping in the freezer, even if you are cooking only for yourself.
