Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed Peppers are such an easy and delicious dinner option. This RAEcipe is more Southwestern in flavor, but don’t be afraid to change it up since it’s so versatile. Feel free to swap the protein and substitute quinoa for traditional rice or even cauliflower rice to cut back on carbs. You can even make it more Italian by making a spicy meatball marinara or American style with crispy chicken and ranch…I could list 100 different ways to stuff a pepper! Get Creative!
