How to make this Keto stuffed pepper recipe
Before you make these yummy peppers, you'll want to preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. While the oven is warming, add ground beef, garlic, salt, and pepper to a saute pan or large skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until the beef is browned.
Once the beef has browned, it's time to add in the diced tomatoes and oregano. Stir the ingredients together and remove from heat.
Now it is time to prepare the peppers. I used green peppers here, but you can use your favorite type of bell pepper or whatever you have on hand. It will still taste delicious, I promise!
Slice each bell pepper in half, and remove the insides along with the seeds. Place the bell peppers halves cut side up into a casserole or high sided baking dish like this one.
Fill the peppers with the ground beef mixture.
Bake the peppers for 20 minutes or until they are roasted and soft. Remove them from the oven and top peppers with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.
Return the peppers to the oven and broil for 5 minutes on high or until the cheese has melted.
