Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Then, wash bell peppers and slice in half length-wise. Take seeds out and discard. Then lay bell peppers in a greased Pyrex dish. Next, wash and shred sweet potato, and dice cilantro. Add olive oil to pan and set heat to low/medium. Next, add ground turkey and sweet potatoes to the pan and cook for about 5-7 minutes until turkey meat is white. Then, add seasonings, cilantro and tomato sauce to pan. Cook on medium heat for another 5-6 minutes stirring throughout until mixture thickens. Turn heat off. Serving Suggestion Directions: Add 2 cups of spinach and stir into mixture. Put lid on to wilt leaves. Next, using a spoon add mixture into bell peppers to fill just above the top edge. Bake for 30-35 minute. You should be able to pierce bell pepper with a fork once it is cooked. Optional: Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over top of bell peppers while they are still hot.
