- If you are using rice, cook the rice and have it ready. Or, if you are like us, just use the organic jasmine rice from Trader Joe's it is ready in 3 minutes in the microwave.
- Heat a large pan over medium heat.
- Add in the ground beef and onion to the pan to brown.
- Mix up the taco seasoning (garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, cumin, onion powder, cayenne, black pepper, salt and oregano) and get your peppers ready while the beef is cooking.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Once the beef is browned, add the taco seasoning and green chilies. Mix well.
- Add in the rice and mix everything together one last time.
- Place the bell peppers on a baking sheet. Fill them up with the beef mixture.
- Place in the oven to bake for 15-20 minutes, until the pepper is cooked to your liking. We like the peppers with a little crunch, so 15 minutes was just right.
- Serve your peppers with optional toppings of salsa, tomatoes, olives, avocado, cilantro, etc.
