Recipe: Stuffed Bell Peppers

Living in Texas means Mexican food is a huge part of our diet. Fort Worth is full of delicious Tex-Mex, but sometimes it leaves you feeling not so great… Don’t worry, you don’t have to sacrifice all of your beloved Mexican food, but sometimes it is a good idea to lighten up your meals.

Introducing Stuffed Bell Peppers. This meal has all the right flavors with healthier ingredients. Ditch the taco shell for a bell pepper and you have an easy, healthy, and quick meal!


1 bag of rice cauliflower

2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

2 tbsp onion powder

2 tbsp. tomato paste

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 lb. ground beef

½ c. of salsa or can of diced tomatoes

1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

bell peppers, tops and cores removed

1 c. shredded Mexican Blend Cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil and cook riced cauliflower for about 5 minutes.  Add onion powder half way through cooking.
  2. Remove cauliflower and hold in a bowl.
  3. In the same large skillet, add tomato paste and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add ground turkey or ground beef and cook. Break up the meat with a wooden spoon, until it is no longer pink, about 6 minutes.
  4. Then, stir in the cooked riced cauliflower and salsa (or diced tomatoes.) Season with oregano, salt, and pepper. Let simmer until liquid has reduced slightly, about 5 minutes.
  5. Place peppers cut side-up in a 9"-x-13" baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Spoon meat mixture into each pepper and top with cheese.  Cover baking dish with foil.
  6. Bake until the peppers are tender, about 35 minutes. Uncover and bake until cheese is bubbly, about 10 minutes more.

In about an hour, you’ll have a delicious meal that incorporates two kinds of veggies and a tasty protein. Happy Cooking!
