Alex’s Halloween Stuffed Peppers



Aren’t the above stuffed peppers just the coolest thing?! These are not my doing but are the work of my son, Alex! He’s a great cook and apparently getting really creative in the kitchen! Thank you , Alex, for letting me share your fun Halloween Peppers.


4-6 orange bell peppers, de-seeded,(save top to put back on peppers)

1 cup cooked brown rice

about 3/4 browned lean hamburger meat ( or could use ground turkey)

3/4 c. whole kernel corn

about 1 cup of clean salsa

juice from one lime

1/2 cup shredded Gouda ( or mozzarella)

Mix all ingredients except peppers together. Spoon mixture into peppers, place top back on pepper. Put in baking dish and cover with foil. Bake 40 min @ 350.

Alex baked extra filling in separate dish. He could let it cool and freeze the extra for quick meal later on..

Side go with

Black beans , drained

chopped green onion

sea salt and black pepper to taste

Top with dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt. Looks great plain as well!

Great job, son, I will be trying these this weekend!!!!!
