Keto Mexican Stuffed Peppers Recipe

I often hear other people say that they find it difficult to find recipes that help them stay on track with their Keto lifestyle. To me, I see this as a delightful challenge. Luckily, I’m pretty well-versed on how to make keto-friendly recipes, and this is why I love to keep experimenting and finding great Keto recipes to share with all of you.

One of the biggest reasons that I love this Keto Mexican Stuffed Peppers recipe is because it’s simple but still crazy delicious. No matter how healthy a recipe is, I’m a firm believer that it should have a ton of flavor and taste as well. Living the keto lifestyle doesn’t mean that food should be dry or tasteless!

Honestly, this is probably one of the most simple Keto recipes that you’ll ever make. My son, who is my biggest keto food critic said, “Mom, I think this is your best keto recipe yet.” I waited until after he finished his second helping before letting him know that there is cauliflower in the recipe. He hates it and can usually detect a tiny bit of cauliflower, but not in this recipe.

You can access all of myKeto/Low Carb Recipes in myKeto/Low Carb Recipe Index or follow me onPinterest for fabulous Keto/Low Carb Recipe Ideas. If you are just getting started following a keto diet and would like more information,here is a list of fantastic resources. Amazon has several excellent books you may want to check outhere.

Store bought taco seasoning might not be the best choice for many who follow a ketogenic diet who monitor ingredients, while others choose their battles. If you are one who watches ingredients, make sure to check out my recipe for homemade taco seasoning.

Popping the bell peppers in the microwave for 5 minutes before adding the taco meat softens the peppers, so they aren’t so crispy when done.

My children are not huge fans of cauliflower, but by just adding a little bit none of them even noticed. You can add more or less depending on your personal preference. In this recipe, it had a nice bulking quality that made me feel like I was eating rice.

You can use any variety of cheeses that are your favorite. I also tested this recipe with a Colby jack mixture that tasted great too.

Extra Veggies in this Low Carb Mexican Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Anytime that I can add even more vegetables into my diet and the diet of my children, I’m 100% game. I love how this Keto Mexican Stuffed Pepper recipe has cauliflower as an added ingredient. Although, cauliflower isn’t my favorite vegetable, once I added taco seasoning, cheese, and boil down the taco meat mixture I couldn’t taste it at all, which was my goal. Feel free to play around with the amount that you use in the recipe as you may enjoy more. It’s a slippery slope with my kids and cauliflower. I have to make sure they can’t taste it.

I created these Low Carb Mexican Stuffed Peppers recipe because my family loves just about any kind of tex-mex or Mexican food. I think it gave the peppers such a nice flavor. I’ve got several other keto Mexican recipes you may want to add to your dinner rotation listed below.

How to Make Keto Mexican Stuffed Peppers Recipe:

Keto Mexican Stuffed Peppers

This Keto Mexican Stuffed Peppers recipe is sure to become a family favorite in your home! It's simple, delicious, and keto-friendly. What more can you ask for when it comes to finding a meal that everyone in your household will love?!


1/2cupsteamed riced cauliflower (I steam a 10 oz bag and use part of it)

1 1/2cupMonterey Jack Cheese or Colby Monterey Jack


Cut bell peppers in half horizontally and clean out the inside. Place face up on a greased 9x13 casserole dish and microwave for 5 minutes.

Add ground beef, chopped onion, and minced garlic to a skillet and cook until ground beef is browned. Drain.

Pop the steam bag of riced cauliflower in the microwave.

Add the Rotel, homemade taco seasoning, beef broth, and 2/3 cup of riced cauliflower (save the rest for a different meal. You could add more but my kids didn’t notice it was in the ground beef with this amount)

Bring taco mixture to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes uncovered on medium allowing the liquids to reduce and the sauce thickens. If the sauce hasn’t reduced after 10 minutes continue to simmer until it does.


Hi I have a question. With six Bell peppers cut in half that’s a total of 12 and yet you say this makes eight servings. I’m confused? if you had to each that would be six servings, so I’m just curious about the nutrition count thank you!

Ahhhh…I see what you are saying. There was a typo in the number of peppers. That has been corrected. It should have been 4 peppers cut in half, which makes 8 servings. It did lower the carb count as well.

Thanks so much Kasey, my family loves this recipe. I use half ground beef and half ground Italian sausage. I also add chopped mushrooms and a 14oz bag of riced cauliflower. This basically doubles the recipe, so I freeze half of the meat mixture to put together quick midweek meal. It’s delicious and easy to prepare. I do recommend anyone making this to use your taco seasoning recipe. It’s easy to put together and delicious.

DELICIOUS! I’m a newly diagnosed Type 2 diabetic and this was awesome. I actually chopped the bell peppers and put it all in the crock pot on low for 4 hours. Added the riced cauliflower the last thirty minutes.

The Best Healthy Fast Food Options

Fast-food stores are plentiful and fast food has the reputation of being unhealthy, while an increasing number of large chains are adding more nutritious options to their menus.

Sockets that allow more customization of orders tend to have lower calorie or more feeder selections. However, there are currently healthy options on the menu of the largest fast-food chains.

In this article, we'll look at the overall calorie, fat and saturated fat content to find some of the healthiest options that seven big fast-food chains have to offer.

Note, however, that calories and fat are only two aspects of how healthy a meal is fed. If a person eats only fast food, it is not possible to get the necessary nutrients such as vitamins and fiber.

1. Subway

Sandwich with cheese and vegetables

One person can customize Subway sandwiches to choose healthy fillings.

Metro specialize in deli style sandwiches or "sub". As a person can customize every "sub", Subway can be one of the healthiest healthy fast-food chains.

Some of the best sandwich options are on the Subway's Fresh Fit menu. The 6-inch Turkey Breast sandwich with nine wheat bread contains 250 calories and 3 grams of fat, including 0.5 g of saturated fat.

A healthy vegetarian option, Veggie Delite in nine wheat bread. This "bottom" contains only 2 g calories, does not contain 2 g total fat and saturated fat. It also has one of the lowest sodium levels (salt) compared to other sandwiches.

Subway also offers salads that can be a low-calorie alternative to a sandwich. All salads include lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, onions, cucumbers, green peppers and olives.

2. Taco Bell

Taco Bell is another great fast-food chain with a variety of healthy options. The ability to personalize each order allows people to choose more vegetable-like nutrients.

According to Taco Bell's website, three-quarters of its menus are under 500 calories. Some of the lowest calorie options are the Fresco menu, which uses regular sauce and cheese instead of vegetable based salsa.

One of the healthiest options is Chicken Soft Taco. Each taco contains about 170 calories, 8 g fat, containing only 3 g of saturated fat.

Bean Burrito is a vegetarian option containing 11 g fat, 380 calories, including 4 g of saturated fat.

3. Chipotle

Vegetable burritos

Vegetarian options are lower in fat than meat options.

Chipotle is a Mexican-style chain that specializes in tacos and burritos. Similar to Subway and Taco Bell, Chipotle allows people to customize their meals to include healthy choices.

Healthy options are burritos or white rice instead of white rice. In a chicken bowl bowl containing fresh tomato salsa and brown rice, there are 415 calories, 13 g fat and 4 g saturated fat.

For a lower calorie, vegetarian option, people can choose a plate of bean curd, brown rice and a sofritas patty with lettuce. It contains 365 calories, 10 g fat and 1.5 g saturated fat. Adding sauce will increase the number of calories.

4. McDonald's

McDonald's had the reputation of being unhealthy, but they recently reaffirmed themselves to offer a variety of fresh and nutritious ingredients. Some of these changes may be cosmetics, while McDonald's has better options.

Fillet-O-Fish contains 390 calories and 4 g of saturated fat from 19 g of total fat. Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad contains only 320 calories and 6 g of saturated fat from a total of 14 g.

5. Burger King

Burger King is one of the largest burger chains in the United States, but has a limited number of healthy options. But some choices are a little healthier than others.

It contains a normal, simple hamburger, 10 g total fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, and 240 calories. Grilled Chicken Sandwich contains 470 calories, 3.5 g saturated fat and 19 g fat.

BK Veggie Burger can be a healthier option among these examples. Contains 2,5 g of saturated fat, 390 calories and 17 g of fat.

6. Wendy

Baked potato with knife, sour cream and cheese filling on plate

Baked potatoes can be a healthy fast-food option.

Wendy is another common fast-food chain that allows people to personalize their orders to make their choices healthier.

The menu of the chain is not abundant in healthy options, but some meals are able to customize to lower the calorie content.

Salads are also available, and if a person chooses some of the half-size salad choices, they can stay below 500 calories.

With a few vegetarian options at Wendy's, Sour Cream and Chive Baked Potatoes
