  • Sprinkle chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and black pepper over the mixture.
  • Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
  1. Simmer:
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the bell peppers are tender and the flavors have melded together.
  1. Serve:
  • Once the skillet is ready, sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the top.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro if desired.
  • Serve hot with lime wedges and avocado slices on the side, if desired.
  • For a complete meal, serve over cauliflower rice or wrap in lettuce leaves.
