Stuffed peppers are one of my favorite comfort foods. I grew up eating my Mom’s amazing stuffed peppers that to do this day, I still cannot replicate. This recipe is pretty close though! Not only is it delicious but it is also simple. Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 2lb Organic Ground Beef (Grassfed if possible)
  • 6 Peppers (I did red and yellow)
  • 1 cup of Fresh Salsa
  • 1 Red Onion, chopped
  • 1/2 Tbsp Gluten Free Sriracha Sauce
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Cajun Seasoning
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Add in ground beef and chopped onion. Cook until brown.
  3. While meat is cooking, cut the tops off of the peppers and clean out the insides quickly. (Tip: I cut as close to the top of the pepper as I can–less mess with seeds)
  4. Once meat is brown, add salsa, sriracha, and seasonings. Mix well.
  5. Get a large, glass baking dish. Stuff peppers full with meat mixture and place in glass baking dish. I put the tops back on mine and eat them!
  6. Bake stuffed peppers for 30 minutes.
Notes
3/4 cup of meat mixture: 3-4 fats depending on leanness of ground beef, 2.5 proteins[br][br]*The stuffed peppers freeze and reheat really well! I usually make 3lb at once then freeze them and reheat them later.
