Southwest Stuffed Peppers Low Carb – Healthy Keto
I made these southwest stuffed peppers low carb version for my family this week and they were a big hit!! I’m always so excited when my low carb recipes are also family friendly and easy. Those are my criteria for every recipe 1. low carb 2. family favorite 3. easy.
I used my basic recipe for turkey taco meat (click here for the recipe) for the meat portion of the southwest stuffed peppers low carb style. (I just realized I didn’t add the chili powder for the peppers, but it didn’t matter.) And for the “rice” I used cauliflower rice and I made it into a green chile cauliflower rice. I have another recipe for Mexican cauliflower rice that makes more a of a traditional Mexcian rice (red color, click here for this recipe) that you could use as well. I didn’t want the tomato flavor in both the rice and turkey taco meat because i thought it may just become all one flavor. So this was a green and red version of the southwest stuffed peppers low carb style.
Although it could all be cooked up together for an even faster version of the recipe too. Just make sure you brown the turkey meat first, then add the rice.
You could also just fill the peppers with the turkey taco meat or just with cauliflower rice for an even lighter approach. Play with what you like and add it to the peppers:) See don’t they look so delicious?
One more funny note about my family, every person likes a different color of bell pepper. I like any of them but green bell peppers, one of my daughters likes red bell peppers and one likes orange bell peppers. Oh and my husband will eat any of them😂
One more funny thing, my husband eats more keto than I do, so he added even more cheese to his😂
