Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut thin slice from the stem end of each pepper. Remove all seeds and membranes. Wash inside and outside. Cook peppers in 5 cups of boiling salted water 5 minutes; drain.
Prepare Mexican rice as package directs. Set aside.
In a large skillet, saute onion in olive oil and set aside.
Add ground turkey to the skillet and cook until done. Drain excess liquid/fat.
Stir garlic salt and chili powder into the meat. Add onion, rice, tomatoes and tomato sauce. Heat through.
Stand peppers upright in an ungreased baking dish. Lightly stuff each pepper. Cover with foil. Bake 45 minutes. Remove foil. Spread catsup on top of each pepper. Bake 15 minutes uncovered.
