Make It

HEAT oven to 350ºF.

HEAT oil in large skillet. Add peppers and onions; cook and stir 5 min. or until crisp-tender. Stir in taco seasoning mix and water; cook and stir 1 min. Spoon into large bowl; cool 10 min.

ADD meat, rice, eggs, 1 cup cheese and 1/2 cup salsa to vegetable mixture; mix just until blended. Divide in half.
