Jack-O-Lantern Stuffed Peppers

A Mexican/Halloween twist on stuffed peppers.

I couldn’t pass up the orange peppers, they looked so much like little pumpkins and were just asking to be stuffed and turned into jack-o-lanterns.  They are so yummy and a fun Halloween dinner.

They are filled with taco meat, rice-a-roni, black beans, corn, chilis, tomatoes and seasonings.  Top with cheese and you have a nice filling dinner.

I prep my peppers earlier.  Clean out the seeds, carve faces if desired and then pop in the microwave for a few minutes.  Be sure to cover them with a damp paper towel when microwaving.

Once they are steamed the first time you can fill them and bake in oven.

They are so cute and delicious.

Be sure to save the recipe for later.
