  • 4 large peppers any color, sliced in half length-wise and de-seeded
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 pound ground pork beef (I used ground turkey)
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cup freshly grated Monterey Jack or pepper Jack cheese
  • Toppings: sour cream and cilantro


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place the peppers on the baking sheet, cut sides facing up and bake until tender, 20-25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until soft, 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the meat and cook until browned and cooked through, 5-6 mintues. Drain off the fat; season with chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, and juice of lime.
  • Remove the peppers from the oven. Switch the heat over to BROIL.
  • Divide the meat into each pepper; sprinkle with cheese. Broil 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted on top!
  • Serve with sour cream and fresh chopped cilantro!
