Looking for an easy dinner recipe for the entire family?! Or one that you can prep and enjoy over a few days?

I got you covered with these delicious and EASY Taco Stuffed Peppers guys! The ultimate way to spice up your weeknight dinner routine without ordering takeout again or heating up a frozen pizza. Although that is 100% us over here at least 2x a week – ha!

These stuffed peppers are such a delicious dinner recipe and they make for some killer leftovers for lunch the next day. I love that they come together so easily. And I can really use ingredients I typically have on hand to make it. There is always some sort of ground meat in our freezer. And for these you can use beef, turkey, chicken, anything works for them. I have made these using all 3 and they turned out perfect each time.

Plus you can switch things up with any jarred salsa you have and beans. I usually use black beans here as you’ll see below. And some chunky milk salsa. But I bet a salsa verde would be so good as well mixed in to the meat.

If you guys try these, let me know what you think! I hope you love them as much as we do!!

  1. Perfect meal to make for 2, and have an amazing lunch to look fwd to for the next day (almost better reheated)!! I am a novice chef so assume the spices should be added while the ground turkey is cooking? Didn’t see exact directions for when to add spice. Thank you!
