5 from 1 reviews

These Bell Pepper Nachos are loaded with all the toppings and flavors we love in regular nachos and much healthier!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 large bell peppers, sliced into nacho size pieces
  • 1 tablespoon of oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup salsa, divided
  • 8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 4 ounce can black olives
  • 1/2 cup guacamole
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Instructions

  1. Place one oven rack on the middle shelf and preheat the oven to 350F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the sliced bell peppers onto the baking sheet.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Brown the ground beef with the taco seasoning, using a spatula to break up the meat as it cooks, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Place the bell pepper slices in the oven and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with meat, salsa, cheese, black olives, and any other toppings you want to be heated.
  4. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
  5. Remove the nachos from the oven and allow them to cool before serving.
  6. If packing into lunch containers, allow the nachos to cool down to room temperature before packing into lunch containers. Pack the guacamole and sour cream into separate sauce containers.
