Weight Watchers Taco Stuffed Peppers

If you are like me, you could seriously LIVE off of Mexican food. There are very few things in this world that I like better than chips and salsa (that's not an exaggeration...)  So, whenever you get the craving for tacos this is your go to recipe. With out having to waste your points on tortillas, it allows you to have much more meat, cheese and toppings! Lets get started...

Weight Watchers Taco Stuffed Peppers
  • 2 green bell peppers, cut in half and seeds removed
  • 1 lb lean ground beef (or meat of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup salsa (plus more for topping if you prefer)
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat Mexican Cheese (plus more for topping if you prefer)
  • 1 tbsp. taco seasoning
  1. Brown your meat, drain the fat and add taco seasoning and preheat oven to 350.
  2. While your meat is browning, cut your peppers in half lengthwise removing the stem and all of the seeds. Place 2 halves at a time in boiling water in a small saucepan for 3-5 minutes each. Make sure to use tongs to remove the pepper halves and place on a small baking sheet
  3. After meat has browned and seasoning is added; add your 1/4 cup of cheese and salsa; mixing thoroughly.
  4. Fill all 4 halves of your peppers with equal amount of the meat/cheese/salsa mixture. Place your baking sheet of stuffed peppers in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Top your peppers with more salsa, cheese, fat free sour cream, or guacamole. Just make sure to add your toppings to your point value.
  • Each half of meat stuffed pepper is 5 WW Points Plus. Make sure to factor in your toppings in your final point value
