Crock Pot Stuffed Bell Peppers

Savoring Saturday

One of my New Year resolutions was to use my crock pot more. With such hectic schedules that are always on the go, and cooking for everyone but our own families, Chanda and I are excited to dive into the crock pot world! With that in mind I am trying to not just do the predictable…pulled pork…stew…etc. Stuffed peppers have always been one of my favorites since let’s face it- you can really just open the fridge and stuff anything kind of combo in them!

Ingredients

I made 7 bell peppers with the following….

7 Bell Peppers (try to grab ones that are more bowl like in shape so they will set will and hold stuffings)

2.5 cups cooked brown rice or quinoa

3 cups ground turkey or beef

1 cup chopped Cilantro

1/2 cup chopped green Onions

1 cup cheese

1 bag of Mexican or Taco seasoning

Sour cream or greek yogurt for topping

Start by cutting off the tops of each pepper and scooping out the innards.

I like to just get hands on when it comes to mixing- next form small balls that are about 1 cup in amount
