mini stuffed peppers

sometimes i am in the mood to follow recipes where i may add a few extra of this or none of that to make it my own. sometimes when the mood strikes me i come up with my "own" creations and just roll with it. these turned out pretty good and would make a great snack or something you can make for dinner. 
they were husband approved. 

1-1.5 pounds extra lean ground turkey
1 cup black beans (i omitted these for my husbands)
mini sweet peppers tops chopped off and seeded or use regular sized bell peppers if preferred
2 large cloves of pressed garlic
2 tablespoons of taco seasoning
1 tablespoon adobe seasoning (not needed but i used it) 
pinch of cayenne (optional)
2-4 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese
1 teaspoon parsley 
1/2 cup red onions or scallions 

1. pre-heat oven to 400. brown the ground turkey in a large pan. you can cut the tops off the peppers and seed them during this step.

2. once turkey is cooked all the way through add 2 tablespoons of the goat cheese (more or less to taste) to warm mixture and stir in so it melts into the meat. add the pressed garlic and stir in. add taco seasoning, parsley, cayenne, adobe and stir in. add a little bit of water if needed to blend.

3. finally fold in the beans, onions you could even add corn (i didn't want the extra sugar) and then stuff the peppers. place in a pan with foil over top or i used a deep covered baker with lid for mine. place in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until peppers are tender.
