I absolutely love grilling! Pulling the cover off of the grill is seriously one of the best parts of my day! I don’t know if it’s the incredible flavor that comes from cooking on the grill, or just the simple fact that I’m able to cook outside while enjoying the late afternoon sun.
I was just thinking the other day that I’ve probably used my grill more than my oven in the past month. It’s already warm inside, so why do I want to turn on the oven and make it even warmer in the house? Plus, the grill is sitting right there by the back door looking at me longingly!
These Southwestern Stuffed Peppers are one of our go-to recipes in the Spiced household. They’re easy to make and loaded with flavor, and I use ground turkey to make this recipe a bit healthier, too. In the winter (when the grill is covered by a
nice blanket of snow), I make these Southwestern Stuffed Peppers in the oven. But in the summer, when the sun is out and the weather is nice, I look for every opportunity to get outside and use the grill. So, last summer, I adapted this favorite for the grill by using a large, disposable foil pan. I wasn’t sure how it would work, but I gave it a shot anyways…and it turned out great! These Southwestern Stuffed Peppers have shown up on the grill a couple of times already this summer…and I suspect they’ll show up a couple more times before the grill gets packed away for the winter.
What are some of your favorite grilling recipes? Have you ever used turkey on the grill? I know turkey is popular around Thanksgiving, but I’ve become a huge fan of using turkey in all sorts of summer recipes. Turkey burgers? Yup! Turkey brats? Of course! Turkey has more protein than beef, fewer calories than chicken and less fat than pork…need I continue? I used ground turkey from Shady Brook Farms for these Southwestern Stuffed Peppers, and it was delicious! (Shady Brook Farms’ turkey products may be available as Honeysuckle White depending on what part of the country you live in.)
Speaking of grilling, have you guys heard about the new Grilling with Friends Facebook app? It lets you plan out your next grill-out with a menu builder where guests can sign up to bring various food, drinks and even extras (like the perfect summer playlist!). This app is nothing short of genius! Plus, you could win a new Weber Grill just for signing up. Sounds like a win-win to me!
Shady Brook Farms (Honeysuckle White) also has just released a new line of turkey burgers. They have six varieties, including Cheddar Jalapeno and Swiss, Bacon, & Onion. These burgers can go from the freezer to the table in 20 minutes…perfect for those weeknights when you just don’t feel like cooking!
As for me, I’m already thinking about when I can get out there and grill up another batch of these delicious Southwestern Stuffed Peppers! Happy grilling!
