Stuffed Bell Peppers
4 large bell peppers with tops removed (assorted colors for a vibrant presentation)
1 lb Mi Tienda's pre-seasoned meat (I used Bistec)
1 cup diced tomatoes (canned or fresh)
1/2 cup diced onions
1/2 cup diced bell peppers (from the tops you removed)
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish
Lime wedges, for serving
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Meanwhile, prepare the bell peppers by slicing in half to make boats and removing the seeds and membranes. Rinse them under cold water and set them aside.
Next, add the Mi Tienda's pre-seasoned meat to a skillet, breaking it apart with a spatula or spoon. Cook until the meat is browned and thoroughly cooked. Note: You can incorporate diced onions, tomatoes, etc. while cooking the meat to add more flavors. Adjust seasoning to your preference
Stuff the prepared bell peppers with the delicious meat mixture, pressing down gently.
Place the stuffed bell peppers in a baking dish, ensuring they lay flat without tipping over.
Sprinkle the shredded Mexican cheese blend over the stuffed bell peppers, generously covering the meat filling.
Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil, creating a tent to prevent the cheese from sticking to the foil.
Bake the stuffed bell peppers in the preheated oven for about 10-20 minutes (depending on size) or until the peppers are tender and the cheese is bubbly.
Carefully remove the foil, and let the stuffed bell peppers rest for a few minutes before serving.
Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves for a burst of herbal aroma and serve with lime wedges on the side to add a zesty touch to each bite.
There you have it—a sensational stuffed bell peppers recipe bursting with Mexican-inspired flavors, all thanks to Mi Tienda's pre-seasoned meat! The combination of fresh ingredients, flavorful seasoning, and ooey-gooey cheese makes this dish an absolute winner at the dinner table.
