Taco Stuffed Bell Pepper Recipe


4 bell peppers of any color, cut in half length wise

1/4 cup of water

1 1/2 – 2 pounds of ground beef, turkey, or chicken

1-2 packets of taco seasoning

1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup sour cream

1 cup of salsa


After cutting bell pepper and taken seeds out of them, put them in a microwave safe container with 1/4 cup of water. Microwave for 10 minutes or until peppers get to desired tenderness. While microwaving peppers, brown the ground meat till no pink is left. Then add taco seasoning to meat and follow directions on taco seasoning package. Then stir in 1 cup of shredded cheese, sour cream, and salsa. Put peppers on a parchment paper lined cooking sheet. Stuff peppers with meat mixture, sprinkle tops with remaining cheese, and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve with desired toppings like sliced avocado, sour cream, Pico de Gallo, etc. Enjoy with rice and beans or with a veggie side dish if you want to stay strictly Keto.

Other Suggestions

There will most likely be left over taco meat that you couldn’t stuff in the peppers. So, you can use that delicious taco filling to put on Doritos or Fritos to make like a Frito pie. You can also use the leftover meat for tacos or stuff other peppers with. Be creative and enjoy.
