Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 15–20 min
1 In a large skillet over medium heat, add onion and cook ground beef until just cooked through, about 7–10 minutes. Add taco seasoning and sauté until well combined. Remove from heat.
2 Preheat the oven to 400° F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Arrange mini peppers in a single layer, cut-side up, very close together.
3 Sprinkle with ground beef mixture and shredded cheese. Bake 5–10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
4 Remove from the oven and top with chopped tomatoes, jalapeño, cilantro, and any other desired toppings. Serve immediately.
Tip: This recipe can easily be made vegetarian by removing the ground beef or replacing it with a protein of choice.
