Has anyone ever made stuffed peppers ? First timer and Im absolutely thrilled with how well they came out! I was initially going to make with ground turkey , but instead made shredded chicken in my crockpot the night before. Im constantly looking for easy ,quick, and healthy ways to feed my family and I.
You Will Need:
4 Green or Red Peppers ( however many you want to make ) I made 4 .
3 shredded chicken breasts. I made my chicken in the crockpot the night before. I do this a lot from time to time to cut my cooking time short.
1/4 of a jar of tomato/ basil marinara or make your own
2 cups of quinoa
3 garlic cloves or cubes ( I prefer to use the frozen cubes at Trader Joes. Cuts my time in half )
2 tsp smoked paprika
All Purpose 21 day Fix seasoning
How To Make Them :
1.Trim the tip of the pepper and boil for 2 minutes
2.Make protein of your choice ( chicken here )I added mine in the crockpot first with garlic, smoked paprika and all purpose 21 day fix seasoning.
3. Cook 2 cups of quinoa in low sodium chicken broth
4.Add chopped zucchini bits and sautee with olive oil. Add cooked quinoa to zucchini. Mix in shredded chicken
5. Add tomato / basil marina (1/4 of a jar . Not much )
Mix together and sauté
Add mixture in to the peppers and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Delicious.
The mixture is kid and husband approved !
