  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Stir 3/4 cup water and taco seasoning into ground beef; simmer until water has evaporated, about 5 minutes.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a separate skillet over medium heat; cook and stir rice in the hot oil until fragrant and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add 1 cup water, salsa, onion, and garlic; bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover skillet, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Stir ground beef mixture into rice mixture.
  4. Spoon a layer of ground beef-rice mixture into each bell pepper; top with a layer of Mexican cheese and a layer of nacho cheese-flavored tortilla chips. Repeat layering ingredients into bell peppers, ending with a Mexican cheese layer. Arrange stuffed peppers in a 9x9-inch baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until bell peppers are tender and cheese is lightly browned, about 30 minutes.

Tasty but could have used more moisture. I would add some tomato juice or something to the meat mixture next time. I would also cook them for at least 40 minutes instead of 30.

Fabulous! And so easy. I sprayed my peppers with cooking spray, added salt and pepper, and stuck them in the oven while I did the rest of my prep so they would be soft. I cooked the rice in a ...

I subbed turkey for the beef, for less fat. I switched the green peppers with red peppers... I found that a lot of people who don't like green can enjoy the sweetness of a red. Also, my cooking ...

These were EXCELLENT! Of course, my kids fussed and wouldn't eat the pepper (not a shocker), but they don't count in terms of reviews. They don't like anything that's not processed and/or unhe...

I made this for dinner tonight and it was excellent. I used red bell peppers and cooked the meat along with the onions and garlic. I put tomato sauce on the bottom of my baking pan so instead of...

So I changed a few things to make it a bit more appealing for a picky pallet. I roasted the pepper for a few minutes on the stove (gas). I used ground turkey instead of ground beef and no taco...

Whole family, include kids, loved these. Made exactly as written except used ground turkey.

I omitted the chips and put the cheese on top rather than layering. Hubby and I love it!
