Chicken Taco Chili Stuffed Peppers – bell peppers stuffed with my ever-so-popular Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili and topped with cheese – easy and SO good!
Although I love these Turkey Stuffed Peppers, you can stuff peppers with just about anything! This recipe is a great use of leftovers, or nextovers taking one dish and turning it into two!
Leftovers are great for lunch the next day, or you can freeze them for another night.

Made this tonight and it was fabulous 😋😋 I added a bit more heat to it.
Do you think there would be any way to make these in an air fryer? Currently undergoing a kitchen remodel and making good use of crock pot, instant pot and air fryer and would love to make these with leftover chili made in the crockpot!
these are so easy with leftovers! it’s like a whole different meal in the peppers. I used the suggested FF sour cream and loved it!
I want to make the chili and then immediately stuff the peppers with it and bake them. Will the chicken end up burning in the oven if it’s already still hot from the crockpot? Only because 40 minutes is a long time.
It should be ok, just cover
This recipe looks great but I have a question about the smart points. When I add the nutrition information into my weight watchers app it comes up as 4 smart point per serving not 3. However the recipe says it’s 3 smart points. Which is correct?
Are you using the recipe builder?
Are these still 3 smart points? This chili is now 0, the peppers are 0. I don’t think 1.5 tablespoons of reduced fat cheese is 3 points, is it?
Could you have this the next day? Have you ever tried? Or too mushy?
Should be fine.
Can you put in tomatoes instead. If so does the cook time change?
Love this recipe.! I’ve made the chili twice now, and use six boneless breasts for more meat. The stuffed peppers are awesome! I use the same technique on the grill., plus some yellow rice. It’s still summer here in NC. No need to heat the oven yet. Crockpot and grill. What’s not to love.? Now looking for an enchilada recipe to go with. Adding some broth and more tomatoes for soup shouldn’t be too hard either!
I passed this on to a co worker, her boyfriend loved it so much, he may now propose. ?
LOL so glad you all liked it, let me know when the wedding is 🙂
Do you have to use a crockpot?
I used the Crockpot Enchillada Soup instead and they were delicious!

These stuffed peppers have a delicious taco flavor. However, instead of using beef, they use chicken. You can always substitute the chicken for beef if you prefer.
I made the chicken taco chili and then I saw this recipe on how to use the leftovers so I tried it and they were so good!!! Can't wait to make this again! Thank you for the great recipe. Rhonda
Gina – do you put into a strainer to drain any excess liquid?
When an ingredient is listed as (optional), does that mean it is not included in the points count?
Made the taco chili tonight and my husband ate so much of it I may not have enough leftovers for the peppers!
I am obsessed with stuffed bell peppers. Been making them a lot recently with eggs. Love how simple this is!
P.S. your website will not allow me to comment with my name & URL or WP account.
Yum! I love them filled with just about everything! S0 strange it wouldn't allow you to.
what do u make them with eggs?? That sounds delish!
Gina, will your taco chili recipe adapt well if I use lentils instead of chicken and beans?
I haven't tried it but why not!
Can you freeze the stuffed peppers??
I was just looking for stuffed peppers recipes last night and had decided to make the Santa Fe ones. I think you've just changed my mind!
those are awesome, but these are easy if you have leftovers!
This recipe is so good! I made that crock pot chicken taco chili tonight and plan to make the stuffed peppers this coming week with it. I froze a good size container of leftover just for that.
