Keto Taco Stuffed Peppers

If you guys have been following me much, you know that Payton has been #keto since August of 2018. We are consistently trying to incorporate new meals into his diet that is family friendly as well.

We have made stuffed peppers a few times, but I recently decided I wanted to try a taco style stuffed pepper since I LOVE Mexican food and am totally missing taco Tuesday!

I opted to use ground turkey over ground beef and obviously, because of family size, I used 2 pounds of ground turkey. He is pretty keto strict so I didn’t add corn which I normally would have done (corn contains too much sugar).

It was really very simple from there and SOOOO good! Everyone in the family loved it. I added some cauliflower rice to our meal to finish it off!

Ingredients

  • 2 Pound Ground Turkey
  • 1 Large Yellow onion diced (I buy it pre diced and frozen)
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 packet Taco Seasoning
  • 7 Bell Peppers (Make sure at

    least 1 is green)

  • 3 Cups (Aprx) shredded mexican cheese
  • Sour cream to garnish
  • Salsa 
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cut tops off of all red bell peppers (6) and clean the contents out. Place peppers on a greased baking pan, hallow side up, for 10 minutes.
  3. In a frying pan, add ground turkey, onions, diced green bell pepper and garlic for 10-15 min
  4. Add taco seasoning and 1 1/3 cup of water and bring the mixture to a boil. Simmer for 7 minutes. 
  5. In the bottom of each bell pepper, add a small amount of shredded cheese.
  6. On top of the cheese, add the ground turkey. 
  7. Top each bell pepper with shredded cheese
  8. Bake until cheese is melted
  9. Garnish your taco stuffed bell pepper as you please and enjoy!!
If you decide to make these, let me know how you like them!!!

Not Ur Average Mom Of 5

Most importantly, I am a mother of 5. I don't have your typical happily ever after family. I am divorced (one of those nasty messy ones), I have way too many bills (don't we all) and I really don't have any interesting hobbies (wasn't always that way, I grew up riding horses) I am in a relationship with the love of my life and my happily ever after. He is the most amazing and loving person I have ever met. Payton deals with my crazy life and family and embraces is with so much love and support. He is the BEST dad and father figure I know). He is an Engineer for our local fire department and that is HARD. I honestly am so proud of him and so proud of what he does BUT I HATE his job, I hate nights away and I hate the time it takes from our family. People don't realize how difficult it is. At the end of the day, I am so thankful for him and our life together, I can't wait to spend forever with him. My kids....they are terrorists. Seriously. I grew up as an only girl out of 4 total kids. I always wanted 4 kids - 2 girls and 2 boys. Well, the big man upstairs had other plans! I am bless with one daughter and four sons. My daughter is the oldest. Makenzee Adele is 11, going on 18. She is smart and hardworking and LOVES school. Caleb is next. He is 9 and so loving. He works really hard in school and loves baseball. Next is Connor. He is 7 and very advanced in school. He hates doing any school work and has the silliest personality and can light up a room. Connor plans to play professional football for the Arizona Cardinals when he grows up. Moving forward is Keegan. I had the worst pregnancy with him. I had Hyperemisis Gravidum and was on home IV and Zofran for the majority of the pregnancy. He was born healthy and is 4 and a wonderful boy who causes more trouble than necessary (he was recently diagnosed with Autism and ADHD). Lastly is Rhett. He is the baby and loves getting treated like he is. He was born April 5 (I am seriously not changing the months constantly) and LOVES cuddles possibly more than his dad. So that is a bit about me and my family! Subscribe to my blog to read more about my WILD ride!!
