Mini Bell Pepper Turkey Nachos

These Mini Bell Pepper Turkey Nachos are a delicious snack or dinner that is both filling and delicious.  With very few ingredients, these can be made quickly for a nutritious meal that is Paleo and full of healthy nutrients.  Enjoy!

For whatever reason, I’ve recently been craving ground turkey.  While it is a fairly strange commitment, I never been able to tackle many tasty recipes with this healthy meat, but I’ve been wanting to give it another shot.  While a delicious snack, these Mini Bell Pepper Turkey Nachos  were perfect for a dinner that filled us up and made us feel comfortable with our healthy decisions.

Prepping for an early dinner post-workout, Ray and I made these in under 30 minutes.  Paired with a glass of wine, they were the ideal way to bring a protein into our diet without bringing in too many unhealthy carbs or “bad” calories like some of our go-to taco nights.  These will definitely be in our usual rotation as of today!
