This is a great recipe. Just enough kick for me but can be cooled down by topping it off with a little sour cream.

They're great!! I used extra lean ground beef, reduced sodium taco seasoning, homemade salsa, and low fat or fat free sour cream... they're so tasty.. this is a keeper in this house! Thanks!

My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. The only thing I did differently was to use some cream colored peppers that we grew in the garden this year instead of the green peppers. Will be sure to make them again!

This was really good! Even the older children tried it! I think I might tweak it by adding some bacon or bacon bits to it next time. Yum!
