Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F
  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Drain black beans and rinse in a wire-mesh strainer. Halve green bell peppers, stem, and remove ribs and seeds. In a mixing bowl, combine ground turkey, seasoning blend, rice, and ¾ cup water. Mix thoroughly until mixture forms a sticky paste. Don't worry if it seems like too much water; mixture will absorb liquid. Keep stirring! Fill pepper halves evenly with ground turkey mixture.

    Cook the Meal

    Place slow cooker liner in slow cooker, if desired. Fold top edges in before putting on lid. Add mirepoix blend, ¼ cup water, 1 tsp. salt, and ½ tsp. pepper to clean slow cooker. Top with stuffed peppers, filling-side up, then black beans and tomato sauce. Turn slow cooker on to high heat. Cover, and cook until turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4 hours.
