Ingredients

  • 4 Large, orange Sweet Bell Peppers
  • 1 Avocados From Mexico ,medium, ripe, diced
  • 1 packet Taco Seasoning blend reduced-sodium
  • 1 pound Lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup lettuce shredded
  • 1/2 cup Monterey jack cheese grated
  • 2 large tomatoes chopped (or substitute with prepared salsa)

Instructions

  1. Cut off the top of your pepper, like you would a pumpkin. Remove the seeds and membrane from the inside of the pepper.
  2. Using a non-toxic black/blue marker, stencil the cut out for the face of your pepper-pumkin.
  3. Carefully carve your “face” with a small, sharp, serrated knife.
  4. Prepare taco meat for stuffing peppers: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Crumble ground beef into the hot skillet. Cook and stir until the beef is completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  6. Return ground beef to heat. Pour seasoning mixture and water over the beef; stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook until the moisture absorbs into the meat, about 5 minutes. Allow to cool 5-10 minutes prior to stuffing peppers
