Hot Sauce Stuffed Baby Bell Peppers


One thing I’m finding that I really love as I try to eat healthier is spicier food. A dash of hot sauce does wonders for my attitude – both when I eat something I love and when I’m eating something that tends to be less appealing. Food with a paleo or low carb flair is especially tasty with a spicy kick.


We recently discovered El Yucateco hot sauce at Walmart and are a little bit obsessed with it. The thing I love is that it’s not just HOT, but has great flavor as well which makes it perfect for adding to recipes. I mean, the less spices I have to add on my own is definitely better.

The hubs and I are both kind of obsessed with baby bell peppers right now. He likes to grill them and serve as a side with, well, anything. I like to slice them up for salads or just eat them plain as a snack. And then we had the idea to stuff them and, OMG, amazing.

Growing up, stuffed bell peppers were something my grandparents made a lot. Theirs were definitely different than this version, but the feeling to absolutely the same. Delicious, spicy ground beef paired with the just-cooked crunchiness of the peppers. Yum. Seriously.
