MINI TACO STUFFED PEPPERS
Everyone loves stuffed peppers but don’t always want to commit to an entire stuffed pepper. I thought it would be a great idea to make them mini!
Then they can be party food, which I’m always drawn too. My husband bought a huge bag of mini bell peppers at Costco which was the inspiration for this recipe but they can also be used in this One-Pan Chicken Fajita Rice.
Don’t get rid of the part you slice off. We’re going to use them later.
In the end you will have several of these tops.
Dice up those reserved bell pepper slices and add them to your meat for some flavor and crunch!
After you’ve browned up the meat and cooked the peppers, add your Old El Paso taco seasoning mix.
Stuff as much of the taco meat as you can into the prepared bell peppers.
Bake these babies for 15 minutes and then sprinkle on some cheese and put them back in the oven for a minute or two until the cheese melts.
Next, we’re going to make the cilantro cream sauce. Just add some cilantro, sour cream, garlic, and a little lime juice to a food processor. Done. Drizzle the sauce on top of the stuffed peppers for a cool compliment to the spicy peppers.
