Taco-Filled peppers

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 4 medium green peppers
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the taco seasoning, kidney beans and salsa. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Cut peppers in half lengthwise; remove stems and discard seeds. In a large kettle, cook peppers in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water.
Spoon about 1/2 cup meat mixture into each pepper half. Place in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until the peppers are crisp-tender and filling is heated through. Top each with tomato and cheese. Serve with sour cream. Yield: 4 servings.
