All the taste of a taco without the hassle of a wrap – it’s all stuffed inside a small pepper, cupping the delicious taste inside!
The best part of this recipe is that it is very versatile. You can add any toppings you want including bacon, onions, and jalapenos. For the sake of this recipe I used minced turkey, cauliflower, cheese, and spices.
This recipe will give you six delicious stuffed peppers. They freeze great for those looking to save them for later in the week. Plus, making them in the crockpot is good for those on the run in the morning and looking to save some cooking time after work.
