Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Cook and stir onion and garlic in the same skillet over medium heat until tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Mix Greek yogurt, cilantro, lime juice, and 1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning together in a bowl; serve over stuffed peppers.

Cook's Notes:

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

You can use any variety of cheese in place of the Cheddar cheese.

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. Read More

Very good. I made it with ground beef since we had it on hand, and used 2lbs ground beef and the same amount of everything else. This turned out well, and otherwise it would have been far too much rice & beans. I replaced the tomato sauce with a spicy salsa since we like spicy food, was great with the Greek yogurt topping.

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! Read More

Very Yummy!! did not add cauliflower rice only because I thought I had some, but I was wrong. Instead I added corn to the mix. Also instead of boiling my peppers I roasted them at 400 for 10 minutes. Read More

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 some salt. Read More
