Step 1

Heat oven to 450° F. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the bell peppers and garlic with 1 tablespoon of the oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Roast until tender, 12 to 14 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the beef, corn, and chili powder and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beef is browned, 6 to 8 minutes more.

Step 3

Warm the tortillas, then divide the beef mixture among the tortillas and top with the avocado, Cheddar, salsa, and cilantro. Serve with the bell peppers and lime wedges. (Personally, I put the peppers atop the beef, before piling on the garnishes).

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This made a really good dinner for us tonight. The garlicy bell peppers were really a great addition. The corn and the spices in the hamburger also added tasty flavor.

Daily Inspiration

We thoroughly enjoyed these tacos. I used red bell peppers and made the tacos just as directed. Love the earthy taste of the ancho chili powder. I heated the corn tortillas on my griddle and we adorned our tacos with salsa, lime crema, avocado, and queso fresco (couldn't find cotija). Soooo good and a definite repeat at our house.
