Cheesy taco bake is another super easy dinner that is packed with vegetables and our kids love it!  This cheesy taco bake is great on it’s own or served with your favorite taco toppings!  Watch the video to find out my trick to get my kids to eat the peppers, onions and even the mild chiles!

What you need:

1/2 half white onion, diced

1 bell pepper, diced (any color you like is great)

1 tsp of minced garlic

1 pound of ground turkey (beef or chicken works too!)

1 packet of taco seasoning

1 can of diced green chiles

1 bag of frozen cauliflower rice

2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

Optional ingredients:

Tortilla shells

Black olives


Green Onions

Sour Cream




What You Do:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Cook onion and bell pepper until softened

Stir in garlic and add taco seasoning

Brown the turkey

When the turkey is almost cooked through stir in rice and diced chiles

Cook until rice is no longer froze and transfer to a baking dish

Cover with shredded cheese and cook for 20 minutes at 350.  Broil for 3 additional minutes to brown the cheese.


Serve on its own or with taco toppings and shells.
