I love finding local North Carolina companies, and I was thrilled when I found the creator of Slawsa on Twitter. She reached out to me asked if I had tried Slawsa. To be honest I had never even heard of it, but I knew it sounded like something I would love to try, and since she's a local I made it my priority to test it out. After visiting Slawsa's website, I learned that Julie (the genius behind Slawsa) had also appeared on Shark Tank! WOW! Shark Tank is my all-time favorite show on TV (okay maybe it's tied for first with The Apprentice) and that really got my attention. After reading more about her on her site I decided to come up with some questions of my own for her, which I will share soon, but for now I want to share this killer recipe that I made today using... yep, you guessed it Slawsa!
In case you're wondering, Slawsa is a mix between coleslaw and salsa and the flavor is unbelievable!
Slawsa Stuffed Peppers Recipe : A North Carolina Original
What You Need:
- 5 Bell Peppers (Red or Green)
- 1 lb of Ground Turkey
- 1/2 c Slawsa
- 1/2 small onion
- Celery Salt
How To Make It:
Pre-heat the oven to 400.
Brown ground turkey on the stove top.
While turkey is browning chop onion and cut the tops off peppers and scoop out and discard the seeds.
When most of the water has cooked out of the pan add in onions and celery salt to taste.
Cook until the onions are soft, then add in Slawsa and cook for an addition 1-2 minutes.
Remove turkey from heat and stuff peppers with meat mixture. Don't forget to put the top of the pepper on before cooking.
Place peppers on a baking sheet and cook at 400 for 20 minutes.
I am literally sitting here at my desk eating this delicious creation and I love it. It's a great way to spice up the same old boring stuffed peppers!
