This is something that I make all the time because it is super easy and I can eat it for lunch or dinner throughout the week. It’s a very easy way to get tons of veggies and protein during that day. You can easily add or change the veggies to your liking or even what you have left over in the refrigerator!
Here’s what you do (nothing is really exact because it doesn’t have to be!)
Cut 6 bell peppers in half (any color), take out the guts, and place in a glass baking pan.
Cover the bottom of the pan with water about a centimeter or so high- this keeps it from burning the bell peppers in the oven
Grill 1 pound ground beef, bison, or turkey in a pan.
When your meat is about half way browned add your veggies. I did a can of corn, black beans, and diced tomatoes. I also had left over rice with carrots and green beans in it so I added about a cup of that so it wouldn’t go to waste. Mix everything in. If you like spice, add salsa and green chili at the very end.
Stuff your peppers. Fill them as much you can! I always end up with extra meat and usually just make tacos with it the next day.
Place in the oven for 30 minutes on 375. If you like, you can add cheese to the tops during the last 5 minutes.
