Done!  Top with your favorite toppings..sour cream, guacamole or just eat as they are.  They are so good.  The peppers not only keep the carb count down, but they’re sweet and add a new dimension to the savory taco meat.  Also if you stick to the timeframe, you will have a bit of a fresh bite texture. (this is one of my favorites!)
