Hi! It's Jennie from The Diary of a Real Housewife. Mexican food has always been a favorite of mine. Ever since I can remember I was asking for tacos for dinner. We still do some kind of Mexican inspired food every week (or more) in my house. We did taco night a little different and made some delicious taco stuffed peppers.
What makes Taco Stuffed Peppers a great Mexican inspired Recipe?
I told you we eat Mexican inspired food several times a week. Since we do tacos so often I'm always looking for ways to recreate it or use up the leftovers. My kids favorite was our taco roll-ups! This meal actually came from left overs from the night before. We had some friends over and made a taco bar. We ended up with lots of left overs so I just mixed the left overs together and made these peppers.
How to make Taco stuffed Peppers?
I've made lots of other classic meals into stuffed peppers, like these quinoa pizza stuffed peppers. It's a great way to change up the same old. For these taco stuffed peppers I just used taco seasoned ground beef, Spanish rice, and corn. Top it with shredded cheese and then bake.
Something I really love about tacos is how you can make them your own. Use ground turkey or skip the meat and add beans. Onions, cilantro, salsa, you can add what your family loves. Once our taco stuffed peppers were cooked I topped with sour cream and fresh diced tomatoes.
