Dinners For Busy Weeknights: Chili Stuffed Peppers
Here at LWASOC, we love recipes that are great for busy weeknights. This particular one was a hit in my house and super tasty. Chili Stuffed Peppers are easy to get going and they're cooking while you deal with last-minute chores or homework. To lighten it up a little more, instead of ground beef we used ground turkey. This is a carb-free meal people! Enjoy!
Taste the meat mixture to make sure that the spices are to your preference. I prefer things a little spicier so if you need to tone down the heat, don't be afraid to halve the spices and add more from there.
