I pulled out ground meat and had no idea what I would do. Then I saw the silly cow cheese when I went shopping remembered the re-fried beans in the pantry and an idea just popped in my head. Mom and Hubby praised the meal big time, and hubby said he thought it was a real keeper.

How to Make Tex-Mex stuffed pepper


  1. It took 3 large peppers to us all my ground meat. I sliced 2 at the top and 1 in half. I recommend the half slice, and starting with 2 peppers.
  2. place peppers in a preheated 400 degree oven open side down for about 20 minutes, then remove from oven.
  3. While peppers get tender, brown the ground meat, season with salt pepper, and garlic powder, and drain if needed. Add Ro-tel tomatoes and chili to the ground meat. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer until the liquid is gone.

  6. add meat mixture, pile it high.
  7. Add additional cow cheese on top of the meat mixture. Crumple it all over the top in medium chunks.
