This is the first dish I turn to when I have a surplus of tomatoes. It’s similar to stuffed peppers, except the tomatoes stay cold and fresh instead of being baked. Each one is filled with seasoned ground beef, browned onions, lettuce, shredded cheese and the insides of the hollowed-out tomatoes for a quick and inexpensive meal that everyone enjoys. This American cuisine can be served as an appetizer, dinner or snacks, depending on how you love it.

1 lb. ground beef

Taco sauce for dipping
How to prepare
Cut an “X” shape into the top of each tomato and pull them apart gently. Then brown your hamburger, and add in the taco seasoning.
Fill the bottom of each tomato with lettuce, then the taco meat, onion, and shredded cheese. Top with sour cream. Serve!
- Depending on the size and shape of the tomatoes you choose, you may need to scale up the recipe and create a second batch to fit them. Fortunately, this is simple to accomplish, and leftovers are always appreciated.
The filling may be prepared ahead of time and reheated in the microwave or in a pan. stuff the tomatoes just before you plan to dine.
