Sausage Stuffed Peppers

The perfect patio dinner, no grill required. These were a crowd pleaser and so easy to make!

Sausage Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients

1 pound spicy sausage (I used chorizo)

1 cup chopped white onion

1/2 cup chopped orange bell peppers

1/2 cup chopped celery

1 1/2 cups quinoa

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

4 medium peppers (red, orange, or yellow)

Method

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Begin with a large skillet and over medium heat brown the sausage (about 3 minutes). Add in the onions, chopped orange peppers, and celery. Saute for 4-5 minutes, or until vegetables are soft. Add in the cooked quinoa, season with salt and pepper, and cook for for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the green onions.

Cut tops off of the 4 medium sized peppers and core them. Fill the peppers with the mixture with a spoon. Place the caps back on the peppers. In a shallow pyrex place peppers standing side by side and add enough water to cover the bottom.

Bake peppers for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

  1. Tip: Shave a very small bottom piece of the pepper perfectly to properly position the pepper on the pan. It stands straighter!
