Taco-Stuffed Peppers Recipe
quinoa stuffed peppers, taco stuffed peppers
any color, sliced in half length-wise and de-seeded
beef (I used ground turkey)
Juice of 1 lime
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!
