//Mexican Spiced Stuffed Capsicum

Mexican Spiced Stuffed Capsicum

I wanted something a little different and had some turkey mince to use up. I’d seen some stuffed capsicums in a magazine I was flicking through and thought I’d try to make some myself, using the turkey mince. I made them up as I went, and they turned out awesome, we all loved them!
