These stuffed bell peppers do not have rice and make a great low carb meal. Serve with your favorite toppings.

This is also great served over cauliflower rice or you can use white or brown rice if you are not watching your carbs.

These Taco Stuffed Bell Peppers are packed with flavor. The bell pepper flavor combined with the meat and seasoning are the perfect combination.

Tips and Substitutions For Stuffed Bell Peppers

  • Instead of shredded fiesta blend cheese you can use shredded pepper jack cheese or your favorite cheese blend.
  • You can substitute and use ground turkey instead of ground beef.
  • For more variety add in corn or black beans.
  • Add a can mild chopped green chilies for extra flavor.

Can I Use Any Color Bell Peppers?

Yes you can. You can use different colors or use all the same. Green bell peppers have a slightly more bitter, tangy taste. Red, yellow and orange bell peppers have more of a sweet taste.

I like to use a variety of bell peppers and everyone can pick their favorite.
