Taco Peppers

Taco Peppers
  • Sharebar

We usually make stuffed peppers with more of an Italian flavor; tomatoes, basil and oregano. We switched it up and made the same filling we used to make for tacos and stuffed that in our peppers instead. It was a huge success, and now I’m not sure Mr. Swiss Paleo will want his peppers stuffed any other way.
