Taco stuffed peppers

Taco Stuffed peppers

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of ground beef or chicken
  • 2-3 green peppers
  • 3 ounces of cream cheese 
  • 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise 
  • ⅓ cup of shredded mexican or cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons of taco seasoning 
  • Pepperoni slices-optional
  • Green onion or sliced olives for topping-optional

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the tops of the green peppers and scoop out the seeds, set aside.
  2. In a large sprayed skillet, cook your ground meat on medium until no longer pink. Add the taco seasoning and a ¼ cup of water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes. I added some diced onion in with the beef. 
  3. Fill each pepper with the meat mixture and top with cheese, pepperoni, green onion or olives. 

Note- I cooked  my peppers on the baking sheet for 5 minutes to soften them up first.

4. Place stuffed peppers on the baking sheet and cook for 10 minutes until the cheese is melted.
