In Florida, something delicious is always in season, and right now our favorite veggies are!  My family snacks on Bell Peppers daily, and I love to cook with them because they are so versatile, so we have stocked up on Fresh From Florida Bell Peppers.

Squash and Sweet Corn are also in season in Florida, which makes me a very happy mommy because getting my kids to eat their vegetables is so much easier when I am serving up lots of their favorites.

Fresh From Florida Bell Pepper Tacos Recipe

My family loves Tacos!  We don’t just eat them on Tuesdays, we usually have them for dinner several times a week, so adding some twists to the average recipe is a must.  For years we have been swapping out the beef for shredded chicken, pork, or seafood, and now we have started changing what we use for a shell as well.  We gave Bell Peppers a try a few weeks ago when we heard they were in season, and the tacos were a huge hit at my dinner table!

Bell Pepper Chicken Taco Ingredients

  • 6 Fresh From Florida Baby Bell Peppers
  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • A packet of Taco Seasoning
  • Chopped Romain Lettuce
  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Sour Cream
  • Optional: Ranch Dressing or Hot Sauce

Bell Pepper Taco Ingredients

Bell Pepper Taco Directions

Start with baking your chicken breast until it is fully cooked.  While the chicken is baking, mix the taco seasoning packet with the amount of water the packet calls for. 

Once the chicken is fully cooked remove the pan from the oven and pour the taco seasoning mix over the chicken.  Place the chicken back in the oven for 10 more minutes.

Next, remove the chicken from the oven, let it cool and then shred or chop it.

While the chicken is cooking prepare your other taco ingredients.  Dice up the tomato, chop the romaine lettuce, and prepare any additional veggies you may want to add to your taco like some sweet corn.

Chicken Stuffed Peppers

After the taco stuffing is ready, it is time to create the taco shell out of the bell peppers!  Cut each bell pepper around the stem and down the side of the pepper in a V-shape. The sidecut should be wide enough to fill the pepper but narrow enough that the sides keep the taco ingredients inside.
