Cowboy Caviar Stuffed Peppers – Ring the Dinner Bell

Cowboy Caviar Stuffed Peppers are fully loaded with savory ground beef, satisfying grains, roasted corn, smooth beans, and gently nestled in a sea of spicy goodness. They’re easy to make and reheat nicely, making them a great option for make-ahead meal prep!

Traditionally, cowboy caviar is a hearty dip that’s served with tortilla chips. It has a tangy-sweet dressing and is typically made with black-eyed peas, black beans, and fresh veggies. We went ahead and skipped the dressing, added enchilada sauce into the mix, and then stuffed all the ingredients into a bell pepper. Hello, gorgeous. Next, for good measure, we topped each stuffed pepper with cheese and baked them to perfection. Here at That’s Tasty, we’re big fans of fusion mash-ups.

That’s Tasty Organic Cilantro is the ultimate herb to compliment any Tex-Mex dish.

Cilantro brings a fiesta of freshness to just about anything you add it to; so, make sure to pile it on! The citrus-like flavor pairs well with the savory notes in this recipe and the pop of green color adds to its curb appeal.
