Stuffed Peppers – Tex Mex Style

Rosie's Recipes

This is such a good and easy recipe.



  • 4 large peppers

  • Salt and pepper

  •  1 pound – ground turkey (or ground beef)

  • 1/2 – red onion

  • 1 can -black beans (do not drain juice)

  • 1 can  – corn (drained)

  • 1 can (11 ounces) – Ro–Tel diced tomatoes and green chilies (do not drain juice)

  • 1 pack of Taco seasonings (or 2 tbps. of homemade taco seasonings or season salt)

  • 1 cup shredded cheese

  • Sour cream, for serving


  •  Preheat oven to 350°

  •  Slice the tops off the peppers or cut the peppers in half and clean out the seeds.

  • Stand the peppers up in an oiled casserole dish and sprinkle the insides with salt and pepper.

  • Meanwhile, make the filling:

  • In a large frying pan over medium heat saute half a red onion.

  • Then add ground turkey and brown it, breaking it apart as it cooks. If using ground beef you’ll want to drain off the grease.

  • Add the taco seasonings and follow the directions on the package.

  • Once the taco meat is ready, mix in the Ro-tel, corn, and black beans. Simmer 5 minutes, stirring often.

  • Stir in the cheese. Fill the peppers.

  • Bake 30-35 minutes – covered with aluminum foil.

  • Serve with a dollop of sour cream.


This is what it looks like before covering with aluminum foil and placing them in the oven.
