Paleo Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Paleo Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients:

  • 1lb of chorizo (or protein of choice)
  • 1 cup of finely chopped vegetables such as onions, carrots, celery and mushrooms
  • Peppers for stuffing. Use a variety of peppers so that people could pick how spicy a pepper they wanted. Aneheims are a great size and have a little bit if heat.
  • 1 piece of bacon to wrap each pepper

Sauté chorizo with finely chopped vegetables (onions, carrots, celery, mushrooms, or a Mexican blend) until cooked through.

Prep your peppers by cutting out the seeds and pith. The pith and seeds are much spicier, so if you go with a mild pepper like poblanos, you could leave a little bit in. Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly after this step and before taking your contacts out or go to the bathroom!

Prepping the peppers

Spoon the protein mixture into the peppers.
