Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Stuffed peppers is one of those dinners that is so easy to make but looks elegant enough for dinner guests. Back in our pre-paleo days, I would load up on rice and cheese in our peppers, and all that really did was add bulk, not nutrients and real substance. The beauty of now making grain-free, dairy-free stuffed peppers is that we’re actually getting more nutrients in the same amount of food.

This recipes makes a lot, which means plenty for dinner and leftovers. If your peppers are on the smaller side, you will need more peppers or you will have extra filling leftover. Which is actually fine, you can eat the filling on its own and it’s just as good (just less pepper taste).

We love these served with a big scoop of guacamole and a drizzle of ranch dressing. And if you’re in a pinch and have some avocados but no other guac ingredients, just dice up the avocados and sprinkle them on top.

    Soooo yummy! I added chopped mushrooms and carrots instead of jalapeno. Also, since I had no diced tomatoes I substituted tomato paste. It was a hit! Thanks for the recipe and inspiration!!

    We loved these! I didn’t have any black olive, so we did without those, and I added some quinoa to make it go a bit further. Delicious! I meant to try some fresh grated parm. on top when done, but forgot, and it was so good we didn’t need it!

      In the same time it took you to write that useless comment, you could have just Googled “calories in bell peppers” “calories in 85/15 ground beef” etc. Better yet, consult MyFitnessPal. Not everyone needs the nutrition information and it’s not the writer’s job to provide it. Be a grown-up and do your own research instead of being a jerk to someone who provided you with an awesome recipe.
