Mini Taco Stuffed Peppers RecipeMini Taco Stuffed Peppers are miniature bell peppers stuffed with taco meat and drizzled with a cilantro cream sauce. These can easily be made prepared ahead of time for an easy appetizer. A great healthy appetizer!

Recipe by:



1 1 b ground beef
1 package (1 oz Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix)
3/4 cup water
1-1/2 lbs mini bell peppers
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cilantro Cream Sauce:
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons lime juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 °.
  2. Slice 1/3 of the pepper off lengthwise, reserving for later use. Seed the peppers. Peppers naturally have one side that is straighter than the other. When slicing the top of your bell peppers, try to slice the side that is curvier off so that the flat side remaining is the side we are stuffing.
  3. Chop the reserved peppers finely and set aside 3/4 cup.
  4. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef and reserved 3/4 cup chopped peppers over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix and water. Cook over medium heat 5-10, stirring occasionally. Let mixture slightly cool. READ MORE
