For the peppers:

  • 1 lb (453.59 g) ground beef
  • 1/2 (1/2 ) onion, diced
  • 2 cups (320 g) cauliflower rice
  • 1 can (1 can) fire roasted tomatoes, drained, (14.5 oz)
  • 1 can (1 can ) sliced olives, (14.5 oz)
  • 6 (6 ) bell peppers
  • 1 cup (112 g) shredded cheese

For the keto taco seasoning

  • 1.5 tsp (1.5 tsp) chili powder
  • 1.5 tsp (1.5 tsp) cumin
  • 1 tsp (1 tsp) paprika, (smoked or regular)
  • 3/4 tsp (3/4 tsp) garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp (1/2 tsp) oregano
  • 1/2 tsp (1/2 tsp) pepper
  • 1/2 tsp (1/2 tsp) salt

  • 1/4 tsp (1/4 tsp) cayenne pepper, (optional, omit or adjust to fit desired spice level)

Optional toppings:

  • To make the keto taco seasoning, mix all of the seasonings together in a bowl or jar. Set aside.
  • Dice onion and gather the remaining ingredients.
  • Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add in the ground beef and onion, breaking up the ground beef into small chunks. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the beef is almost cooked through, about 6 minutes.
  • While the ground beef is cooking, prepare the bell peppers. Cut the tops of the bell peppers off and use your hands to carefully take out the seeds and membranes, leaving an empty "shell".
  • Once the beef is almost cooked through, add the taco seasoning. Stir well to mix and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the cauliflower rice, fire roasted tomatoes and olives to the meat mixture. Stir to mix and remove from heat.
  • Place the bell peppers on the baking sheet. Fill each bell pepper up with the taco meat mixture from the skillet. Top each bell pepper with some cheese.
  • Place in the oven to bake for 15 minutes, or until the bell peppers are cooked to your liking. Remove from the oven and serve.
