First, you need to make the taco with seasoned beef. In a large skillet over medium heat, add meat and seasonings. If you want to use store-bought taco seasoning you can measure out 1 tablespoon. If you make the seasoning, that includes chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Cook and break up meat until cooked thoroughly for about 6 to 7 minutes. Drain meat of excess fat. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the ends off the mini bell peppers and then cut lengthwise. Removed seeds and ribs. Place peppers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. arrange the peppers in a single layer, cut side up. Bake for 5 minutes. Top peppers with cooked ground beef and cheese. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with sour cream or Greek yogurt, guacamole or avocado, lettuce, green onions, and sliced jalapenos.
While you do not want to eat beef every day, beef is a great source of nutrients and vitamins. Beef contains zinc, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, and iron.
