Taco Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Taco Stuffed Peppers are the BEST recipe when eating healthy. They are full of flavor and only take a few minutes to throw together. It's the perfect meal for a busy night, and they taste amazing. Healthy eating has never tasted so delicious.

Now that we have started our Six Sisters’ Strong Program, I am trying to eat healthier and try new foods. I have never tried stuffed peppers and to be honest, never wanted to.

I thought if they had all of the flavor of tacos, that I might be able to do it.  I threw these together in a few minutes to make a healthy, delicious dinner that my whole family loved.

They are now requesting these Taco Stuffed Peppers weekly. You are going to love how quickly these come together and how delicious they taste.

They take minutes to come together and have the most amazing flavor.

what could i replace the rotel tomatoes with?

I am a huge tomato fan, but my husband is not. When we make this recipe, we usually use a little bit of taco sauce or enchilada sauce. It is a great alternative and adds a lot of flavor.

We also like to use salsa, but depending on how strong their hate for tomatoes is, your choice might differ.

But we highly recommend using red taco sauce. This is also found near the salsa at the grocery store.

could i use any bell pepper for this recipe?

For this recipe, we used red bell peppers, but you could use any bell pepper you wish.

We make these with green bell peppers all the time, and they are just as delicious.


If you don’t want to serve all 8 peppers at once, you can easily freeze some. Before baking, stick them on a pan and put them in the freezer for an hour.

Once flash frozen, take them out and put them in individual plastic bags. Stick the bag under cold water with the opening above the surface. This will push all the air out of the bag and then while it is still submerged you can seal it (just don’t let any water in the bag).

Then throw the individually sealed peppers in the freezer.  Store up to two months.  When ready to bake, thaw in the refrigerator overnight and bake as directed!
