Taco Stuffed Peppers

With the Holidays behind us I’m finally getting back on here and getting to work! The last two weeks have been a blur full of Christmas Parties and a mess of a house! πŸ™‚ With some down time the past two weeks I was excited to get to try out a new recipe that I have been wanting to make for awhile. Β My family loves tacos but I was really looking for another way for them to get the taco flavoring without eating the carb packed tortilla shell all the time. Β We substituted the shell for a Bell Pepper and the kids still liked it!

Hope you all had a great holiday season also! I look forward to sharing with you all this new year!

Taco Stuffed Peppers


Taco Stuffed Peppers


  • 4 Red, Yellow, Green Peppers (Choose which type of Pepper you would like to use)
  • 1 cup Long Grain Rice
  • 1lb Hamburger (We use Grass-fed)
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheese
  • 2 cups Salsa
  • 1 Medium Onion (Chopped)
  • 1 cup Corn
  • 1 packet Organic Taco Seasoning (We use Simply Organic)


Step 1
Cut out the insides of the Peppers that you will be using as the base. Leave Peppers hollow inside
Step 2
Place Peppers in a Glass baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes
Step 3
While your Peppers are cooking brown hamburger in a skillet and cook your rice according to your type of rice.
Step 4
Mix in the taco seasoning, corn, salsa, chopped onion, and rice to the hamburger when it is finished
Step 5
Take Peppers out of oven and fill each pepper with the hamburger mixture and cover in shredded cheese
Step 6
Place Peppers back into oven at the 350 degrees for another 10 minutes until cheese is melted on top
Step 7


This is the Taco Seasoning that my family now uses. Β We love it and it doesn’t have any of the artificial ingredients that you find in traditional taco seasoning!

  7. I pinned and will be making them for my sister’s family. One likes green pepper, one complains about green pepper hurts her tummy, she prefers red, one likes the yellow or orange. I think this will please them all.

  8. I may not be understanding your directions clearly. You say to cut out the insides…but then what do you do with them? Are you chopping them up into little pieces and adding them to the hamburger mix? TFS. Visiting from Make it Pretty Monday.

    • I throw out the insides of the peppers that have the seeds. Leaving just the outside to stuff with the hamburger mixture.
