Taco Peppers

I was feeling a little cranky by the time I left work last night, but luckily I had some excellent plans: hit up the Loft 50% off sale (THE ENTIRE STORE WAS 50% OFF!!!!) before meeting Erica in America at Trader Joe’s to pick up some groceries for our delicious dinner.

PSA: I love, love, LOVE the Modern Skinny jeans at Loft.  I ended up buying two more pairs (black and gray) before picking up a black top and trying to walk to the counter with tunnel vision.  It worked and my credit card left the store feeling slightly violated, but still ok.

Erica and I decided to have a dinner date to catch up.  We both LURVE nachos and tacos, but are trying to be a bit healthier….so why not stuff some bell peppers with all of the taco goodness?  Automatic portion control plus less carbs.  We got 4 peppers so we’d have leftovers for lunch or dinner today.

It was seriously simple and delicious…just make everything you would for regular tacos and layer it in the peppers then bake.  My dad recommended baking them covered in some water so that the pepper would soften up before the cheese got burnt.  Unfortunately, he told me AFTER the fact so Erica and I were left eating slightly too-crunchy peppers.

Please ignore my messy stove and the piles of burnt cheese on the cookie sheet…I’m not a very neat chef.

Tonight I’m heading to Unite Fitness with my friend Lauren for their Unite In Pink workout.  It’s all women and if it’s anything like the last free class I tried at Unite, my ass will be sufficiently kicked.  I’m trying out one of their regular classes next Monday….I’ll definitely let you know how that goes!
