Mini Stuffed Peppers Two Ways

I love food in miniature and I love dips, so it's safe to say I could exist on appetizers.

I made these for Carol & Dad's annual holiday party and it was my first time making the taco ones but the mozzarella pesto beauties are a standard quick little bite in our house.

1/2 lb or 1 lb ground turkey
taco sauce to put in with that
green onions
finely shredded cheese
mozzarella cheese, cut in strips
bag of mini peppers

Brown ground turkey, drain, and add taco sauce . Use the leftovers to have tacos one night that week - you need a very little amount of this. Allow to cool.

Cut tops off of peppers and cut them in half. Scoop out any seeds and cut away some of the pepper to make them a little wider if you need to. Lay them in a 13x9.

I filled half and half with the taco mix and topped with some finely shredded cheese and green onions and half with the mozzarella cheese topped with the pesto. You could certainly do all of one or the other. Preheat oven to 400 and bake for seven minutes. Serve immediately.

Finger foods for life
Sorry forks, you are fired
Manner regression.


  1. Pinned! They look so good. I can't wait to try them.

  2. Yum, I would definitely do these! I agree, I could live on appetizers.

  3. Yum! I'm a huge fan of stuffed peppers and tacos, and I feel like this combines the best of both worlds for me!

  4. Ahh, these look/sound so good! I love finger foods and dips, too. Sometimes that's all I order at a restaurant! K would really like these, too! Stuffed peppers (of any kind) are a favorite in our house!

  5. Our Xmas celebration with you kids on 12-26
    Will be finger foods. My favorite! Relaxed and fun.
    These are very colorful, too. I'll be making them.
    Love ❤️ the haiku!
    Love. Your. Momma.

  6. I made a version of taco stuffed peppers a couple of weeks ago and I think that I shall make them again. And I might make this version for a NYE party we're going to.

  7. I've never made the peppers that smaller size - I really like that idea.

  8. LOL @ the fired forks! I always see the tiny peppers in the stores and always wondered what I could do with them...and now I know!

  9. These look awesome. May be making an appearance New Year's Eve...

  10. LOVE stuffed peppers and LOVE the idea of doing mini ones - I never thought to do that!

  11. Perfect finger food for parties and a nice twist to the traditional stuffed peppers!
