Here's How To Make Taco Stuffed Peppers:

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut your bell peppers in half and remove the seeds. If you cut tops off, you can use the pieces of pepper from the top to stuff inside the pepper. Otherwise, just clean out the seeds and leave the stems on. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until a bit softened. 
While the peppers are in the oven, dice up your onion, jalapeño, and pieces of bell pepper. Melt your butter in a skillet, then add in the peppers and onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. 
Next, add in your ground beef and brown. 
After the meat is browned, add in your seasoning mix. Cook for a few minutes then add your water. Let it simmer on the stove until all the water is evaporated. 
Take your bell peppers out of the oven, and drain any excess water from them. Now, just stuff your bell pepper halves with the meat mixture, and top with cheese. Bake for another 10 minutes, and broil to get the cheese crispy at the end for 3 -5 minutes, keeping a close eye on them to make sure they don’t burn.
*These bell peppers were a little small, so we had a bit of extra meat, but we ate it all, don’t worry. 😉 
Now, top with sour cream, cilantro and guacamole. We served it with some limes and hot sauce as well. 
Now, just serve and enjoy!
