Step 3 – Pour 2 of the 3 cans into the bottom of the pot so your peppers have a nice little pool to swim in during baking.

Step 8 – Using the same pan you cooked your veggies in, cook your turkey in the 1/2 cup of broth. Be sure to add your spices here too.
Step 9 – In the last 3-5 minutes of cooking, return your veggies and cooked black rice to the pan. Mix well
Step 10 – Return the entire mixture to the mixing bowl. Add your tomato sauce.
Step 11 – Stir well.

Step 12 – Fill your peppers with the meat mixture.
