These Taco Stuffed Peppers are a great way to make stuffed peppers. Dinner bakes on one baking sheet and the pepper rings cook faster than big stuffed peppers or meatloaf.
Taco Stuffed Peppers – Low Carb, Keto, Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, THM S
I saw the pin for these Mini Meatloaf Pepper Rings on Pinterest a few months ago and have wanted to make my own version since then. My kids like meatloaf but they loooove tacos. I decided to make my stuffed pepper rings have a Mexican twist.
Make sure to save the tops and bottoms of the peppers for another recipe. You can toss them into a green salad or even make roasted red pepper soup.
For taco seasoning, I just use the cheap $1 bottles of spices found in many grocery stores. You need onion powder, garlic powder, minced dried garlic, minced dried onion, paprika, cumin, chili powder, oregano, crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper.
