THIS IS WONDERFULLY EASY RECIPE. TRUE COMFORT FOOD. SO MANY VARIATIONS TO CHOOSE FROM, OLIVES, GREEN ONIONS, LETTUCE, TOMATOES, ANYTHING YOU WANT. I USE SWISS CHEESE AND MUNSTER BUT YOU CAN USE MOZZARELLA, CHEDDAR, OR COMBINATIONS OF ANY CHEESE YOU LIKE. MY FRIEND LIKES IT EXTRA CHEEZY SO SHE PUTS ONE SLICE INTO THE PEPPER, FILL IT WITH THE BEEF MIXTURE AND THEN ANOTHER PIECE ON TOP. YOU CAN SUBSTITUTE GROUND CHICKEN OR TURKEY FOR THE BEEF IF YOU WANT TOO!

How to Make INCREDIBLY EASY SLOPPY JOE ALA TACO STUFFED PEPPER

Step-by-Step

  1. PREHEAT OVEN TO 375 DEG.
  2. SPRAY A SKILLET WITH NO STICK SPRAY AND FRY THE GROUND BEEF. ADD THE GARLIC POWDER, SALT AND PEPPER TO THE MEAT WHILE COOKING. ONCE ALL THE BEEF IS BROWNED REMOVE FROM THE HEAT AND DRAIN THE GREASE.
  3. RETURN TO THE MEAT TO THE HEAT AND ADD THE MANWICH SAUCE AND TACO SEASONING. STIR IT TOGETHER OVER THE HEAT FOR A FEW MINUTES UNTIL EVERYTHING IS MIXED WELL, REMOVE FROM THE HEAT AND SET ASIDE.
  4. CUT THE PEPPERS IN HALF. I LIKE TO USE THE BRIGHT COLOR PEPPERS TO ADD COLOR TO THE DISH. CUT THEM LENGTH WISE AND REMOVE THE STEM AND SEEDS. PLACE THEM IN A OBLONG BAKING DISH.
  5. FILL THE PEPPER HALVES WITH THE BEEF (I PUT THE MEAT MIXTURE RIGHT UP TO THE TOP OF THE PEPPER HALF). THEN ADD A PIECE OF CHEESE TO THE TOP. (YOU CAN FOLD IT A LITTLE SO THAT IT FITS THE PEPPER WITHOUT TO MUCH OVER HANG)
  6. BAKE IN THE 375 DEG OVEN FOR 20-25 MINUTES. THE PEPPER WILL BE SLIGHTLY COOKED BUT NOT MUSHIE, ALLOWING FOR A BIT OF CRUNCH.
  7. WHILE THE PEPPERS ARE COOKING SHRED THE LETTUCE AND CUT THE TOMATOES INTO LITTLE CUBES. ALSO, IF YOU LIKE OLIVES, CUT THEM TOO. PUT THE INGREDIENT INTO INDIVIDUAL BOWLS SO YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS CAN CHOOSE THEIR OWN TOPPING.
