Yield 8 peppers
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes

Ingredients

For the stuffed peppers:

  • 4 bell peppers, any color
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 4 tablespoons sugar free ketchup
  • 2 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar

For topping:

  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sugar free ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • Splash of pickle juice
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • Shredded cheddar, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, crumbled bacon, chopped pickles, for topping

Instructions

To make the peppers:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Slice each pepper in half from root to tip. Remove the seeds and membranes from the peppers. Place in a 9x13 baking dish.
  3. Add the beef to a medium skillet over medium heat and brown, crumbling the beef as it cooks. 
  4. Once beef is cooked through, add the ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and seasoned salt. Stir well to combine. Remove from the heat.
  5. Add the cheese to the beef and stir to combine.
  6. Spoon the beef mixture into the pepper halves. Pour ⅓ cup of water into the bottom of the pan to steam the peppers as they cook.
  7. Cover the pan tightly with foil and bake for 35 minutes or until peppers are as tender as you’d like. 

To make the topping:

  1. While peppers are baking, whisk together the mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, vinegar, garlic salt, and chili powder until combined. 
  2. When peppers have finished baking, sprinkle the tops with cheddar, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles. Drizzle lightly with the sauce. 
  3. Serve hot.

Notes

Green bell peppers have 6 carbs per pepper while red peppers have 7. Use whatever color you prefer.

We prefer Heinz No Sugar Added Ketchup, but any sugar free ketchup you like will do.
