Ingredients for servings
Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large food processor, add mushrooms and process until minced.
In a large sauté pan, cook ground beef over high heat until brown; add taco seasoning to coat beef. Stir in mushrooms; remove from heat.
Place mini pepper halves on the baking sheet and stuff each with beef and mushroom blend. Top each pepper with cheese and bake for 15 minutes.
While the peppers are baking, add avocado, lime juice, sour cream and jalapeno (if using) to the bowl of a food processor; process until smooth and creamy.
Once nachos are done baking, garnish each with red onion, avocado cream and cilantro.
