As usual, I’m always on the lookout for ways to enjoy tacos during the week. These Taco Stuffed Peppers are always a hit in our home. To make life easy, I will typically make a large batch of taco meat for the week.

We have a large family first of all. Second, there’s so many options. Taco salads are always a hit. Classic Ground Beef Tacos. Taco Stuffed Avocados. And these Taco Stuffed Peppers.

HOW TO MAKE TACO STUFFED PEPPERS:

  • Cut the peppers in half, and scoop out the seeds and membranes from the inside. It’s easy to do with a spoon.
  • Lay the peppers on a baking sheet, cut side facing up, and bake them to soften.
  • While the peppers bake, prepare the taco meat. I recommend my recipe for the Best Ground Beef Taco Meat.
  • Once the peppers are softened and the ground beef is prepared then spoon the taco meat into the peppers, top with cheese. You can bake for a couple additional minutes to melt the cheese if desired.
  • Top with any desired toppings and enjoy!
