Drunken Stuffed Peppers

I love Mexican flavors and cooking, but flour tortillas and cheese and sour cream are my worst enemies.  So, to bring some of my favorite Mexican flavors into my kitchen, I made Drunken Stuffed Peppers… a little tequila and lime flavoring definitely did the trick!


  1. 3 large green peppers
  2. 2 tbsp. olive oil for misting
  3. 1 lb. ground sirloin (hamburger) meat
  4. one half of an onion, chopped
  5. 2 cans chopped tomatoes with spicy chilies in them
  6. 2 shots tequila
  7. juice of one lime
  8. 2 tbsp. cumin
  9. 2 tbsp. smoked paprika


  1. Cut the peppers in half, lengthwise, so they look like bowls.
  2. Lay the peppers on a large cookie sheet and spray lightly with oil.  Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes, until fork tender.
  3. In a large saute pan coated with cooking spray, add the meat and chopped onion.  Stir it for a few minutes until the meat starts to brown.
  4. Add both cans of spicy chopped tomatoes, tequila, lime juice, cumin, and paprika.
  5. Stir for a few more minutes, until the meat is cooked through.
  6. Scoop the meat into the pepper bowls and broil for a few minutes.  You may need to drain some of the liquid from the meat or use a slotted spoon.
  7. Serve hot… and with a margarita!


Later in the week, I even used the filling on top of a salad with some corn and spicy dressing!
