Stuffed Taco Tomatoes


  • 4-6 large tomatoes
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 4 cups spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Slice the top off each tomato and carefully scoop out all the pulp, creating a hollow cavity. Place the hollowed tomatoes in a baking dish.
  3. In a large sauté pan, brown the ground beef over medium heat until fully cooked. Once cooked through, add the taco seasoning to the beef and stir until well combined.
  4. Add the chopped spinach and corn to the pan with the beef. Cook, stirring frequently, until the spinach is wilted and the mixture is thoroughly combined.
  5. Spoon the beef and spinach mixture into the hollowed-out tomatoes, distributing it evenly among them. If there is any leftover beef mixture, you can spread it in the bottom of the baking dish around the tomatoes.
  6. If desired, sprinkle shredded sharp cheddar cheese over the stuffed tomatoes.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the tomatoes are heated through.
  8. Once out of the oven, garnish the stuffed tomatoes with freshly chopped cilantro.
  9. Serve hot as a delicious and flavorful main dish or as a side. Enjoy your stuffed taco tomatoes!
