Easy Stuffed Peppers

I love stuffed peppers! There are so many ways you can stuff them! This one is a Mexican style version using rotel tomatoes and taco seasonings, but you can also make an Italian style version by substituting the rotel tomatoes with Italian diced tomatoes and Italian seasonings. These are so versatile and easy to make! You can also use any color pepper you like! The red ones are sweeter so those are my absolute favorite color peppers! I hope you give this recipe a try!

Easy Stuffed Peppers

7.5 oz 93% lean ground beef, cooked (1 1/2 Lean)
2 oz or 1/2 cup 2% reduced fat Mexican Cheese (1/2 Lean)
1/2 cup cooked cauliflower, grated (1 Green)
1/2 cup Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained (1 Green)
2 medium sized bell peppers (4 Greens)
2 tsp low sodium taco seasoning mix (4 Condiments)
2 tbsp salsa (2 Condiments)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the tops off of the green peppers and discard. Cut peppers in half from top to bottom. Remove the seeds and membrane of the green peppers. Boil the peppers for about 5 minutes or until tender. Drain.

Combine cooked ground beef, rotel tomatoes, grated cauliflower, taco seasoning, salsa, and half of the cheese in a medium size bowl. Pour the mixture into the green peppers and sprinkle the top with the other half of cheese. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until cheese has melted. Enjoy!
