  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; cook peppers until just soft, 6 to 7 minutes. Drain and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; add chicken and 1 1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning mix. Cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 8 minutes. Chop or shred chicken and transfer to a bowl.
  4. Cook and stir onion and garlic in the same skillet over medium heat until tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Mix onion mixture, black beans, tomato sauce, and cauliflower rice into the bowl of chicken. Stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning. Fill the bell pepper halves with the chicken mixture.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes. Top chicken mixture with Cheddar cheese and continue baking until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes more.
  7. Mix Greek yogurt, cilantro, lime juice, and 1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning together in a bowl; serve over stuffed peppers.

  • This recipe was created following the South Beach Diet® and is great for all 3 phases. For phase 2 and 3, cauliflower rice may be substituted with brown rice.

Very good recipe. I left out the cauliflower rice and cut down on the tomato sauce added (used 2/3 of the can). I also added a can of green chiles to add a little extra flavor.

I doubled the recipe and did half pinto beans and half black beans. Great recipe!

I loved this! I seasoned to taste instead of using the measurements. I added cayenne, salt, pepper, and chicken seasoning. I used ground chicken. Definitely will make this again!

I didn't have cauliflower rice so I substituted with white rice (so much for low carb!). It was good but I thought it was quite bland. I know it's a healthier dish but next time I'll throw in so...

Super tasty and filling. Love finding awesome low/no carb dishes like This! Thanks Nicole for posting it!

It was good. A little bland; I'll add a dash of cayenne next time. I also added some black olives since I needed to use some up.
