Delicious Taco Flavored Filling
This delicious recipe for taco stuffed peppers uses ground beef or turkey and is an excellent way to use leftover salsa in the fridge. Another bonus is that any leftover meat filling can also be used in taco salad later in the week. I use green bell peppers because I prefer the taste, which is less expensive than red, yellow, and orange. If family members like the colorful varieties’ sweeter and milder taste profile, go for it, especially if it entices them to eat more vegetables. Look in the produce section for sales on the “stoplight packages” – green, yellow and red in a bag. Growing peppers in your garden is also a great option.
