Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375. Place cut and cleaned bell peppers in a baking tray. Brush with a little bit of olive oil. Set aside.
  • Over medium-high heat in a non-stick pan with olive oil, cook the onions until translucent, 4-5 minutes. Add the ground beef and cook until just browned. Add spices and stir until combined.
