10 Super Stuffed Bell Pepper Recipes

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Are you looking for new ways to eliminate unhealthy ingredients and add more healthy ingredients to your recipes? Stuffed Bell Peppers are a fun way just to do that. A large size bell pepper has about 50 calories and is loaded with folate, magnesium, copper, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6, and potassium. Use peppers in place of high calorie wraps that have very little nutritional value. For an added bonus, stuff your peppers nutritional storehouses like beans, lentils, whole grains, finely chopped veggies and lean meats. Top it off with a puréed vegetable sauce for added flavor. Keep yourself healthy with these 10 super stuffed pepper recipes.

I made the crockpot stuffed peppers last week and swapped the beef for ground chicken. They were delicious but next time I need to add more spices. I thought I added enough but I didn't. I'm on a hot sauce kick so, I added it when I ate them. Report
beautiful photos--I'll be stuffing today! Report
I could eat a different stuffed pepper every day of the week! AWESOME! Report
