Packin Heat

This post is about guns.. Oh wait, wrong blog.   This post is about stuffin peppers!   Oh I love peppers.  Only cooked though, the raw ones are sick.   Same with raw onions.  Yuck.  What’s wrong with you people?  A lot of people just stuff peppers with rice, not me.  Rice is the devil in a cute little carby outfit.  Yeah it’s good- but it’s essentially nutrient free and full of carbs.  Unless you get the wild rice, and that shits gross.

Here’s the recipe-

1lb lean ground sirloin or turkey

1 small white sweet onion

1 large handful of fresh spinach

1 cup of tomato basil pasta sauce

1 tsp of garlic powder

1 tbsp of chili powder

1/4 cup presliced jalapenos

use parm cheese sparingly

tomatoes- optional

Preheat oven to 420

While the oven is heating up, brown lean sirloin, or turkey with 1 white sweet onion.  This should take about 7-8 minutes.

Add spinach and cover for about 30 seconds till it wilts

Remove from heat, and add tomato basil pasta sauce, garlic powder, chili powder, jalapenos  and cheese

Cut the tops off and gut 5-7 peppers, any color, they’re all good

Fill the peppers and put in the oven for about 45-50 minutes

I like to add the little tomato slices with parm cheese when there’s about 15 minutes left till they’re done.  This is sure to impress!

These are so good.  I usually will just eat them for dinner, but if I ever had a dinner party these would be a wonderful appetizer.  Unfortunately my kitchen is about the size of a port a potty, and my living room isn’t much bigger.. so no fancy dinner parties yet.  One of these days…
