  1. In a large skillet, cook turkey and onion over medium heat 8-10 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink and onion is tender, breaking up turkey into crumbles. Add garlic and seasonings; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in tomatoes, rice and bread crumbs.
  2. Cut sweet peppers lengthwise in half; remove seeds. Arrange pepper halves in a 13x9-in. microwave-safe dish; fill with turkey mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Microwave, covered, on high for 7-9 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a full-size 1,100-watt microwave. If your microwave does not accommodate a 13x9-in. dish, microwave stuffed peppers, half at a time, in an 8-in.-square dish for 6-8 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender.

"I made these tonight for dinner and my family loved them. I did not have any ground turkey so I used the ground beef."
