#Recipe: Mini Pepper Taco Boats
Hi there! I made my favorite tonight for dinner, and I thought I'd share the recipe with you all!
1 packet of organic taco seasoning (I like Simply Organic)
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (more if you like it hotter)
1 lb ground turkey
1 lb mini peppers, halved and seeded
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1 cup of cooked black beans
Other toppings as desired (sour cream, olives, chopped jalapeño, avocado, etc.)
In a large skillet over medium heat, brown ground beef until just cooked through, about 7 to 10 minutes, breaking up any clumps with the back of a wooden spoon. Add spice mixture and sauté until well combined, and cook as directed. Remove from heat. Stir in black beans.
Preheat oven to 400F and line a large baking try with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Arrange mini peppers in a single layer, cut-side up but very close together.
Sprinkle with ground beef mixture and shredded cheese (make sure every mini pepper gets a little meat and cheese!). Bake 5 to 10 minutes, until cheese is melty.
Remove from oven and top with chopped tomatoes and any other desired toppings. Serve immediately.
I LOVE this meal because it is so filling, and it doesn't leave you sluggish from carbs!!!
Let me know if you're going to try it! <>< J
