Sure peppers are a great addition to tacos, but what about using them as the Taco shell? Cut our famous bell peppers in half and there you have it a veggie shell! Here’s how we load our pepper shells.
What You'll Need
- Pre-heat oven to 400 F.
- Slice each bell pepper in half. Remove stem and seeds. Place pepper on sheet pan and bake for 10-12 minutes.
- While the peppers are roasting, heat oil in large heavy-duty pan over medium-high heat. When onion starts to brown, add ground meat. Crumble and stir meat for 2-3 minutes until brown. Add seasoning of your choice and stir for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Fill each roasted bell pepper with about ½ cup of taco meat mixture (or until full). Sprinkle with cheese and return to oven to bake for 20 min or until cheese bubbles and is lightly browned.
- Remove from oven and top with lettuce, tomato, avocado, sour cream, cilantro and jalapeno, as desired.
