Just created a new taco dinner alternative using a gorgeous orange bell pepper. The pepper adds a nice crunchy aspect and the meat helps you pack in the protein.
Mexican-style Stuffed Bell Pepper
1 small onion
1 medium or large tomato
1 bell pepper (your color of choice)
1 lb. ground beef or ground turkey (the less fat % the better)
1 packet of taco seasoning (your choice)
Directions: Wash the vegetables. Cut off the bell pepper top and cut out the white insides. Rinse the inside of the bell pepper quickly to get rid of any seeds and set it on your dinner plate.
Dice onion and tomato and throw into a small-medium pan. Throw the ground beef into a large pan and turn both burners onto medium-high. Cook the meat until it’s browned (the tomatoes and onion mixture can cook for the same about of time) stirring occasionally.
Drain excess oil from meat pan and add 1/2 cup of water. Place back on stove and add the tomato and onion mixture and the taco seasoning. Cook for 5 more minutes. Using a large spoon, fill the bell pepper with your meat mixture and serve!
