    Yesterday, when I compiled my Rosh Hashanah Menu, I promised y’all that I would give out the recipe for my Stuffed Peppers today, and here they are. I’m glad I made that promise, since it “forced” me to make these gluten free, grain free stuffed peppers for dinner last night, and my husband and I love them. They’re quite colorful and festive, as you can see in the photo above, and mighty tasty, not to mention high protein.

    2 (4 oz.) cans diced green chiles
    1 pound ground turkey

    2 teaspoons cumin
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon celtic sea salt
