Mexican Style Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Do you love Mexican? Are you looking for more ways to whip up another Mexican dinner without always having tacos or enchiladas? Then this mouth watering Mexican style stuffed peppers recipe is for you! Easy to make and easy to eat, you can't be that!

My family has come to really enjoy stuffed peppers. This wasn’t a meal that I made early on in our marriage. Mainly because I didn’t know how it all worked, what to put inside them or even if I would like it. I tend to be a picky eater. I’m probably the pickiest eater in the house. But one day I decided to branch out and see what all the rave was over stuff peppers. I’m so glad I did because this recipe is a winner!

I love that this isn’t super complicated to make. It does take some time getting it all together but once it’s done all you need to do is plop one pepper on your plate and you’re done! Your meat, your side choice, and your veggie are all inside this puppy.

Mexican Style Stuffed Peppers

  • Olive Oil
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • chopped onions
  • Taco seasoning
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 5-6 bell peppers halved and seeds removed
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 (15 -16 ounce) jar mild salsa
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Core out the peppers, be sure to rinse out all the seeds and pull out any of the remaining white insides that we don’t eat.

Lightly coat the peppers with olive oil – I like to pour a bunch of olive oil into my baking dish and roll the pepper in it then use my hands to coat the top and bottom. Roast in a baking dish about 20-25 minutes just until cooked thru. Remove the peppers from the oven and allow to cool until you can handle them.

Dice onions. Brown beef with the onions until they are fully cooked. Add the taco seasoning and simmer according to your package directions.

Carefully spoon the mixture into each of the bell peppers and place back into the baking dish.

Cook the peppers for another 15-20 minutes or until the peppers are cooked all the way thru.

Before removing from the oven sprinkle the tops of each pepper with shredded cheddar cheese. Place back into the oven just until the cheese has melted.

You can top with extra cheese and/or sour cream just before serving.

And in case you were curious if my kids eat this dinner, here is proof! The love the inside goodness more than the pepper but I’m okay with that!
