Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers

This recipe for turkey stuffed bell peppers was created one night when I was trying to come up with something different to do with ground turkey. There are only so many turkey burgers and turkey hash dishes one can make without going mad with boredom. The family liked this dish and have asked that I put it into regular rotation.
