  • Heat a large skillet to medium-high and add ground beef. Cook until brown, about 5 minutes, stirring to crumble. Sprinkle with taco seasoning; cook 1 minute. Stir in rice. Remove from heat.

  • Meanwhile, place bell peppers cut-side down on a baking sheet and place in oven set to broil. Cook until slightly tender and browned on bottoms, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool slightly, and stuff each pepper evenly with rice and beef mixture.

  • Top each pepper with cheese and return to oven. Broil 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese bubbles slightly and starts to brown. Remove from oven and top with avocado.
