Love this! Quick and delicious. Hubby & kid tested. :)

  • 2 med. bell pepper, green, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 lbs. beef, ground, free-range or grass-fed, organic
  • 2 tbs. onion, any type, organic
  • 1 can kidney beans, canned, organic
  • 8 oz. tomato sauce, organic
  • 3 tbs. taco seasoning mix, organic
  • 1/4 c. yogurt, greek, plain, full-fat, plain, organic
  • 1/4 c. cheddar cheese, mild, raw, organic
  • 1/4 c. tomatoes, red, fresh, organic

Cut tops off the peppers, cut in half lengthwise and remove seeds. In a large pot, cook peppers in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water. Set aside.

In a large skillet, cook the ground beef or turkey and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain off any fat. Stir in the beans, tomato sauce and taco seasoning; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-6 minutes or until heated through.

Spoon the meat mixture into the peppers. Place in an ungreased 8 inch square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until peppers are tender. Top with yogurt, cheese and tomatoes. I also added some sliced green olives just because we love them with anything taco flavor. :)

You could add more spice or hot peppers to this if you'd like!

I hope that you'll enjoy this. We sure did!
