  • 1 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 ½ lb Ground beef
  • 1 Small onion chopped
  • 2 Cloves garlic minced
  • 3 Large bell peppers
  • 1 tablespoon Chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon Onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 cup Shredded lettuce
  • 6 Cherry tomatoes diced
  • 2 tablespoon Full fat sour cream
  • 1 cup Shredded cheddar cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, and saute for 2-3 minutes when the onions begin to soften.
  • Add in the minced garlic, and stir for 30 seconds.
  • Toss in the ground beef, and break it up, stirring often while it browns.
  • Mix in 1 tablespoon of chili powder.
  • Add in the onion powder, paprika and cumin. Stir the meat mixture well, and continue to cook it until it is completely browned.
  • 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.
  • Fill each bell pepper half with the meat mixture. It is okay to heap the mixture up over the top of the bell pepper if needed.
  • Top the meat filled pepper halves with 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Bake the peppers in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the cheese has melted, and the peppers are starting to turn tender.
  • Remove the peppers from the oven, top with shredded lettuce, diced tomato and sour cream.
