Paleo Epazote Stuffed Peppers

Sometimes all you need to get out of a cooking/eating slump is to discover a new flavor.  It can take a dish you make all the tie taste different, so you'll never get bored even if you're repertoire isn't as thick as Mastering the Art of French Cooking. 

Epazote is a spice that some describe as 'medicinal' tasting  and is very popular in Southern Mexican cooking.   It has a bite, even a little citrus flavor, and if you can't find it you could probably use a combination of dried oregano, cilantro and lemon pepper.

4 medium Anaheim Peppers
1 lb ground turkey
1 small onion, diced
1 small bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
1 tbs Epazote
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
salt & pepper
2-5 tbs almond meal
2-3 tbs ghee, melted

Blister Anaheim peppers on the grill, and peel the skin off while still hot.  It's murder on your hands but easier than letting them cool. Cut a slice in the middle and remove seeds

Sweat onions and bell peppers in a pan.  Add turkey and brown, add tomato and spices and saute until fragrant.  Stuff turkey mixture into peppers and place in a baking dish.

Top with almond meal drizzled with ghee, place under a broiler until almond meal begins to brown.
