In this healthy take on a turkey enchilada recipe, we stuff everything into a roasted poblano pepper shell rather than tortillas to pack an extra serving of veggies into this meal. If you can't find poblano peppers, you can substitute green bell peppers instead.

  • To prepare sauce: Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomato sauce, broth, chipotle, adobo sauce, chili powder, 1/2 tsp. cumin, and 1/8 tsp. salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, prepare stuffed poblanos: Cut each poblano in half lengthwise and remove core and seeds. Place the poblanos on the prepared baking sheet. Roast until almost tender, 13 to 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add turkey and onion; cook, breaking the turkey up into smaller pieces, until the turkey is no longer pink and the onion is translucent, 5 to 8 minutes. Add garlic and tomato; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the enchilada sauce, water, cilantro, cumin, oregano, and salt; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in tortilla pieces.

  • Divide the turkey mixture among the poblano halves, spooning about 1/3 cup into each one. Top each poblano half with 1 Tbsp. cheese. Bake until golden brown and heated through, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • To serve, top each stuffed poblano half with about 1/2 Tbsp. avocado and garnish with 1/2 Tbsp. sour cream, if desired.
