These Fiesta Mexican Stuffed Peppers are packed full of flavor and are super easy to make for those nights when you need something quick! I have to be honest here, for years I hated bell peppers especially the green ones! Not sure when that changed for me. I don’t really like many dishes with bell peppers, but something about these stuffed peppers have got me hooked.
I started making these about a year ago and I tried different variations, but this one by far is my favorite! The flavors just come together and make this dish so delicious. I love Mexican food, but we all know most Mexican dishes are full of carbs. These Fiesta Mexican Stuffed Peppers have all the flavor with hardly any carbs.
They are pretty simple to make. I love to make these because most of the time we can eat on them for several days. I live for leftovers. It’s just like eating a taco without all the carbs. And if you really want to cut most of the carbs out you can eliminate the rice, but I figured one cup of rice isn’t that bad.
You can always melt the cheese on top, but I prefer putting on all my toppings after they are done and on my plate! There really are so many variations you can do to this recipe. I have tried several, but this one by far is my favorite.
