Need a new idea for that pound of ground beef?
I was speeding my way through the grocery store with a pound of ground beef and bargain 6-pack of red peppers, trying to figure out what I was going to make for dinner, when the idea came to me – stuffed peppers! Truth be told, not everyone (I won’t mention any names) in our house is a huge fan of traditional stuffed peppers, so I rarely make them. Time to think up a new idea…they like pretty much anything with taco seasoned ground beef and they love cornbread – maybe I could combine those into a stuffed pepper – I’d give it a shot. Peppers filled with taco seasoned ground beef, cheese and topped with cornbread!
It took several tries to work out all the details (like the cheese layer in the center of the pepper that helps to keep the cornbread from absorbing all the juicy taco filling) but eventually they turned out great! It’s fun to cut into the pepper and see the hidden taco surprise (I know I’m easily amused!) I actually got a little cheer the last time I announced that we were having Cornbread & Taco Stuffed Peppers for dinner! Score 1 for Mom!
