Easy Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Easy Stuffed Peppers Recipe

My husband loves stuffed peppers. But I admit I don’t make them often. When I do make them, I always change the recipe around for fun. So far, all the stuffed peppers recipes I tried out are simply delicious. And yes, my husband would agree as well 😉

Recently,  I came across an easy stuffed peppers recipe that turned out to be so yummy that I simply had to share with you guys. This one calls for mini bell peppers. I have to say,  my recipes always centered around regular green peppers. There were few other  ingredients as well that I never used in my other recipes. I was hesitant at first but as adventurous I was when it comes to kitchen affairs, this girl went ahead  and gave it a try! And I am glad I did 🙂

So with out further ado, I present to you an easy Stuffed Peppers Recipe, Yes! You are welcome 🙂

EASY STUFFED PEPPERS RECIPE

MINI TACO STUFFED PEPPERS WITH CILANTRO LIME CREAM SAUCE


Yields: approximately 32 servings

Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

1 lb ground beef

1 package taco seasoning mix

¾ cup water

1-1/2 lbs mini bell peppers

1 cup shredded cheese

 

Cilantro Lime Cream Sauce

½ cup sour cream

½ cup fresh cilantro

½ teaspoon minced garlic

2 tablespoons lime juice

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Slice 1/3 of each pepper off lengthwise, reserving for later use. Remove seeds. Try to slice off the curvier side of the pepper, so the flatter side remains – making it easier to stay put while stuffing.

3. Dice the reserved peppers and set aside ¾ cup.

4. In a large skillet, cook beef and reserved ¾ cup diced peppers in medium high heat until beef is brown; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix and water.

Cook over medium-high heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let mixture slightly cool.

5. Fill each pepper as full as possible with the beef mixture and place on a baking sheet. Bake peppers for 13-15 minutes.

6. While the peppers are baking, make the Cilantro Lime Cream Sauce. In a food processor, pulse the sour cream, cilantro garlic, and lime juice until smooth.

Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

7. Remove peppers from oven and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Return to the oven for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

8. Place the Cilantro Lime Cream Sauce in a small plastic bag. Snip the corner off with scissors and drizzle the peppers with the sauce.

Notes: The peppers can be assembled in advance and placed in the oven when ready to bake. If time permits, make the Cilantro Lime Cream Sauce a day ahead of time to give the flavors more time to blend.

So, what do you think? Love the sound of this easy stuffed peppers recipe? If yes, I urge you to make a batch and test it out. The cilantro cream sauce is a winner and add so much yumminess to this recipe ten times over! 

Happy Cooking 🙂
