Tex Mex Stuffed Peppers for Mommy and Daddy

My sister-in-law makes stuffed peppers a lot. She said it's a super easy family dinner to make, so I thought I'd give it a try.  I have never made stuffed peppers before, and I have to say my sister-in-law is right. They are really easy to make, and are really delicious.

Here's what you'll need:
4-6 Large Red Bell Peppers
1 lb ground beef, turkey, or chicken (I used ground kobe beef)
1 cup part skim shredded mexican cheese
1 avocado mashed
1 package Near East Spanish Rice mix
1 package taco seasoning
Fat free sour cream

Preheat oven to 350F.  Prepare Spanish Rice according to package (takes approx 20 minutes). Brown ground meat in a large skillet over medium heat. Add taco seasoning and cook for another minute or two. Slice tops off of each pepper and scoop out seeds. Place peppers in a lasagna pan. Stuff peppers with cooked meat. Add a little taco sauce in each stuffed pepper. Add approx 1- 1 1/2 tblsp shredded mexican cheese. Put stuffed peppers in oven and cook for 15 minutes. When peppers are done, add 1-2 spoonfuls of cooked spanish rice inside each pepper. Add salsa, mashed avocado and sour cream and serve. Enjoy!
