Guys and Gals!!! Who doesn’t like a quick, easy, and healthy weeknight meal?!? I know I DOOOO…especially with our crazy schedules.
Here’s a quick recipe that will leave your family full, and satisfied.
All you’ll need:
1 pepper per serving
1 lb. of ground beef/turkey/pork
1/2 white onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Shredded cheese to top the peppers
Green onions for garnish
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, cumin, onion powder, smoked paprika, dried cilantro (1/2 tsp each)
What you’ll do:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put your peppers on a baking sheet that has been lined with aluminum foil and sprayed with Pam nostick spray. Drizzle the peppers with extra virgin olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and pop them in the oven.
While the peppers are cooking in the oven (about 20 minutes), sauté the onions, garlic and red pepper flakes for about 2-3 minutes until tender and translucent. Add in your ground meat, and cook on medium to high heat for about 10 minutes or cooked through. Next, drain the grease from the meat in colander.
Remove the peppers from the oven, and spoon in the meat mixture all the way to the top.
Top the peppers with shredded cheese and return to the oven and let cook for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is all melted. Serve with your favorite side dish, and enjoy!!
Dinner is served!!
