What You’ll Need:

Bell Peppers: You will need fresh bell peppers, not frozen. I used a variety of different colored bell peppers, but you can use any color bell pepper that you like.

Ground Beef: I used grass-fed ground beef to make these nachos, but you can also substitute with black beans or ground turkey instead.

Taco Seasoning: You will need taco seasoning to season the ground beef. Some taco seasonings contain added sugar, so I try to purchase one that contains no added sugar.

Jalapeno: I added sliced jalapeno peppers for some extra spice.

Avocado: I topped the nachos with avocado slices. You could also top them with guacamole.

Mexican Cheese: I used shredded Mexican cheese to top the bell pepper nachos.
