This is a great recipe for when you are trying to clean out your fridge. With just a few ingredients you can put dinner on the table in a snap !
1/2 pound ground meat/poultry ( I had beef)
1 can of corn
2 medium sized bell peppers ( I actually had 1 whole one and a half )
1/2 yellow onion, diced.
Taco sauce of your choice
Garlic powder, Chilli powder, oregano, salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded mexican blend cheese
1/4 cup bread crumbs
oil for cooking
Heat oil in a skillet and saute onions and beef with browned
Add the seasonings and corn and cook till the raw smell of the seasonings go away.
Add the taco sauce, about 1/4 -1/2 cup, stir in and take off heat. The sauce acts as a binder, so add as much as you want. The amount will vary based on the amount of fat that comes out of your filling of choice. For example, lean ground turkey might need more sauce than a 80-20 ground beef mixture. if you do not have taco sauce, you can use salsa.
Allow the filling to cool
Preheat oven to 375.
Mix the cheese and breadcrumbs together and set aside.
Cut the peppers and remove the ribs and seeds to create a cavity that you can fill. I like to cut it length-wise.
Fill the peppers with the meat and corn mixture and top with the cheese and bread crumbs
Place peppers in a baking dish and drizzle a little bit of oil on the top.
Bake for 20 mins till golden brown
Serve hot, with a knife and fork. It will get messy !
