Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    14 gram(s) Butter (Kerrygold) Pure Irish Gold Foil 1T=14g
    2 serving 1 Med. Green Bell Pepper
    1 tbsp Olive Oil
    1 clove Garlic
    10.67 oz Ground beef
    1 tbsp Chili powder
    1 tsp Cumin seed
    99.22 grams Tomato Sauce
    1 cup Colby and Monterey Jack Cheese shredded

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400F (200C).
Cut the peppers in half, discard the seeds and place the peppers in a greased baking dish.
Drizzle olive oil on top of the peppers and place them in the oven while you are preparing the filling. If you prefer a crunchier pepper, you can skip this and just bake them after youve filled them.
Chop garlic finely.
Heat olive oil in a frying pan, add the garlic and fry until soft. Add ground beef.
Fry for 5 minutes or more, and add chili, cumin, salt and pepper and then the tomato sauce. Let simmer for 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in half the cheese.
Stuff the peppers with ground-beef mixture, sprinkle cheese on top and return to oven.
Bake in oven for another 25 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream and some leafy greens.
