Walking Mexican Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Mexican Stuffed Peppers Recipe

So I have a beef with stuffed peppers. They are too tall. And hard to eat. Do you just bite into it and risk everything falling out? Do you use a fork? Do you cut it up and eat it by bites?


Walking Stuffed Peppers. Peppers, that are cut and laid on their sides, filled and cooked. The pepper softens as it bakes, so you can then eat them like a taco. One bite at a time, without a huge mess. Love it!

Walk and eat. Walk and eat. Walking Mexican Stuffed Peppers, just like Walking Tacos!

  1. What a great idea! I need to make stuffed peppers very soon. 🙂 Thanks for sharing all of these stuffed pepper recipes, Melissa!

    • No problem! I am loving trying so many different ones. Surprisingly my husbands favorite has been the one with the most veggies! great way to get veggies in your family I think!

  2. I made these tonight and they were delicious! So versatile too – I didn’t have beans or corn on hand, so I subbed rice and salsa. Love the idea to turn them into walking taco peppers! Thanks so much!
