Italian stuffed peppers

Serves 4

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 large bell peppers, tops cut off and inside cleaned
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely diced
  • 4 Chomps Original Beef Stick, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups cauliflower rice
  • 1 cup finely diced zucchini
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 c. halved grape tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4 c. sliced fresh basil
  • Optional: 1 c. shredded mozzarella + 1/4 c. grated parmigiana

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350º.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add a pinch of salt and place the cleaned bell peppers into the water for 3-4 minutes to soften. Remove from the water and drain upside down.

  3. While the peppers are resting, prepare the filling. Finely dice the tops that you cut off the peppers and add those to a preheated nonstick pan along with the diced yellow onion, sliced Chomps Original Beef Stick, cauliflower rice and diced zucchini for that keto-friendly mix of ingredients. Saute for 8-9 minutes until fragrant and lightly golden.

  4. Add the minced garlic, halved grape tomatoes and dried oregano and saute for 1-2 minutes until you start to smell the garlic. Remove from heat and stir in the fresh basil. *If you plan to add the mozzarella, stir it in now.

  5. Place the lightly cooked peppers in a small baker. Fill with the vegetable and Chomps sauteed mixture. *If you plan to add the parmigiana sprinkle this on top of the peppers now.

  6. Add 1/4 c. water to the bottom of the baking dish and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 14-15 minutes to set everything up. Remove from the oven and enjoy your Keto Italian stuffed peppers!
