Chili Stuffed Peppers

Saw a pic on pintrest of another recipe somewhat like this, and decided to make our own version. It was soooo gooood.  It smelled awesome while it was cooking. Enjoy!

*6 bell peppers
*1/2 onion
*1 package of ground turkey
*1 small can of tomato sauce (not puree), or diced tomatoes if you choose
*1 can of corn
*1 can of beans - black or red - whichever you choose
*Chili powder
*onion powder
*Season All salt
*ground pepper
*Shredded cheese of your choice

*Cut the tops of the bell peppers off and hollow out the insides. Rinse until all seeds are gone. Stand up in a baking/casserole dish.
*Slice onions very small
*Drain the cans of corn and the beans

*Bake the empty peppers on 350 for about 5-10 minutes to pre-cook them. But do not over cook, as they will have trouble holding their structure. 
*Chop onion into small pieces and saute with a bit of oil, in pan,  until clear
*Brown the ground turkey in pan with sauteed onions & add in the seasonings
*Add in the tomato sauce a little bit at a time, as it cooks. you want it to help add liquid to the mixture but not enough to make it soupy.
*Add in the corn and bean
*Heat until all flavors are cooked well together.
*Place the mixture into the pre-heated peppers.
*Top with cheese
*Bake for about 15 minutes at 350.
