Taco Stuffed Peppers (Keto, Low Carb)

If you have been a reader for any length of time then you know I have been following the Weight Watchers plan and love sharing Weight Watchers recipes with you all. Recently, my husband started following a Keto or Low Carb diet. This wasn’t exactly music to my ears, as us being on two different diet plans has made meal planning more challenging. But he has been experiencing success, and I want to be supportive, so I have been cooking lots of Keto friendly meals for him. I figured I would share them with you as well, starting with these easy and yummy Taco Stuffed Peppers (Keto, Low Carb).

These taco stuffed peppers (keto, low Carb) are cheesy and delicious. These are great if you are following a low carb or keto diet. #keto #lowcarb


Taco Stuffed Peppers (Keto, Low Carb)

To make these taco stuffed peppers (keto, low carb), you will start out by sauteing an onion in olive oil until it begins to soften.

Next, add in some minced garlic. As a shortcut, you can buy jarred minced garlic. If you love garlic as much as I do and use it a lot, this is a good option.

Then add in the ground beef, and break it up, stirring often while it browns.

Add chili powder, onion powder, paprika and cumin to the meat mixture, continuing to stir and cook until the meat it completely browned.

Now it is time to stuff the peppers. I like to use a colorful variety of peppers since I think it adds interest. You can use your favorite type of bell pepper or whatever you have on hand.  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.

Now comes my favorite part – the cheese! Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese on top of the meat filled pepper halves.

Bake the peppers until the cheese has become gooey and melted, and the peppers start to turn tender.
