Mexican Pulled Chicken stuffed peppers

I am on a SPICY Mexican kick!!!! I do not know why I do it to myself but I end up with heartburn EVERY TIME but it is so good while I am eating it!!! :) Which I think that is all that matters!!!! 

Baby was craving more spicy and I had peppers that needed to be used. I decided to make chicken stuffed peppers, Mexican style!!! They were sooooo good!!!!
The Ingredients:
3 Medium/Large Bell Peppers (any color will do!) , cut in half
3 - 4 chicken breasts
1 can Tomato and Chili's
1/2 bell pepper, diced, use one of the halves 
1/2 onion, diced
taco season - 1 tsp salt, 2 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp oregano, 1 tsp ground cumin


The Directions:
In a frying pan add chicken, can of tomatoes and chili's, 1/2 bell pepper, 1/2 onion, and taco seasoning. Mix everything together and let the chicken cook on medium/medium high. I added just a little bit of water to help mix in the taco seasoning. As soon as the chicken is cooked all the way through, shred the chicken and add back to the mixture. Scoop the mixture into the 5 bell pepper halves. Top with cheese, if you do dairy. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Once the peppers are out add a dollop of salsa on top of the cheese. 


We served our peppers with avocados!!! Mexican Cauliflower Rice would be awesome with this too!!! 




ENJOY!!!!!
