Why I Love This Recipe

I wanted to try something a bit different for stuffed peppers and thought that a Mexican flavor would pair nicely with green pepper and it was quite good! I'll definately make this one again.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 large green pepper, halved, cored and seeded
6 oz. 95% lean ground beef
1/2 envelope taco seasoning
1/4 c. panko
1 large egg
seasonings of your choice- I used crushed red pepper, ground red pepper, chili powder, salt and pepper (I like it spicy!)
1/2 c. shredded Mexican cheese
1/4 c. fat free sour cream
1/4 c. guacamole


Mix ground beef, taco seasoning, panko, egg, spices and 1/4 c. of shredded cheese in a medium bowl, divide mixture evenly into pepper halves. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes or so, sprinkle the remaining 1/4 c. of cheese on top of each pepper and continue to bake until cheese is golden and bubbly, about 10 minutes. Top with sour cream and guacamole and serve!
