Taco-Stuffed Jack 'O Lantern Peppers: Carve Out Some Time to Make These for Halloween Dinner!

What do you get when you fill a bell pepper jack 'o lantern with a hearty taco-seasoned meat filling? A fun Halloween dinner! 

You'll need:

  • 1 pound ground beef, turkey or chicken
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 can black beans or kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped, fresh cilantro (optional)
  • 4 orange bell peppers
  • Toppings: sour cream, shredded cheese, chopped tomato, black olives, pico de gallo

Here’s how to make them:

  1. Carefully cut around the stem on the peppers and remove. Using a sharp knife, cut a jack o’ lantern face into the peppers. Place in a baking dish.
  2. Brown the ground meat in a skillet. Drain off fat. Add taco seasoning, beans and salsa. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat and cook about 5 minutes. Add cheese and cilantro. Stir until melted and thoroughly combined.
  3. Fill the peppers with the meat mixture. Put the stem back on top.
  4. Pour about 1/4 cup of water into the bottom of the pan. Cover with foil.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until peppers begin to soften. Serve with desired toppings.
