Keto Turkey Stuffed Peppers

Posted in : Dinner, Keto on by : Mike

As I have focused more on Keto recipes. I have remade on of my others recipes. Traditional peppers are stuffed with lots of tomato sauce and rice. By removing the rice, I also found I had to lighten the dish by moving from beef to ground Turkey.
