Bell Pepper Nachos with 1-Minute Cheese Sauce

1-Minute Cheese Sauce
 ½ cup half and half
 2 ounces cream cheese
 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
 ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
 Salt to taste
Mushroom Taco Meat
 1 tablespoon oil
 8 ounces mushrooms, chopped
 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
Bell Pepper Nachos
 3 bell peppers
 Mushroom Taco Meat
 ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese
 1-Minute Cheese Sauce
 4 ounces guacamole
 4 ounces pico de gallo salsa
 2 ounces sour cream
 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1-Minute Cheese Sauce

Warm ½ cup half and half over a medium-low heat in a medium saucepan. Add 2 ounces cream cheese and whisk until incorporated.


Turn heat to low, and add a fourth of the 1 cup cheddar cheese. Mix to combine, then add another fourth, repeating until all ingredients are combined.


Mix in the ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper.

Mushroom Taco Meat

Warm 1 tablespoon oil in a medium saute pan.


Add 8 ounces chopped mushrooms and turn heat to medium. Once mushrooms begin to sweat, add in 1 tablespoon taco seasoning. Stir until the shrooms are fully coated. Cook until mushrooms have reduced by over half.

Bell Pepper Nachos

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.


Take 3 bell peppers (I recommend sweet ones like reds, yellows, and oranges), and slice them down the side lengthwise to create “chips.”


Place the peppers on a quarter-sized baking sheet, with the inside of the pepper facing up, to form cups.


Divide the Mushroom Taco Meat between the bell pepper chips. Do the same with the ¼ cup shredded cheese.


Place baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes.


Remove baking sheet from oven. Top the peppers off with the 1-Minute Cheese Sauce, 4 ounces of guacamole, 4 ounces of pico de gallo salsa, and 2 ounces of sour cream.


Finish off with 1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro and enjoy!
