Stuffed peppers get a Mexican twist in this easy slow cooker recipe that makes dinner effortless
You wouldn't think there would be much to have issue with when it comes to a stuffed pepper, but leave it to me to find something. I've always loved the sound of them, but when done in the oven, the peppers never really cooked enough for my liking, leaving me with mushy, cooked filling and an exterior pepper shell that still crunched. Not a fan. The solution to that is precooking the peppers before stuffing them, but let's be honest, who has time for that? Not I.
Enter the slow cooker. This thing is actually the perfect stuffed pepper cooking vessel there is. When cooking low and slow like things do in slow cookers, the peppers become perfectly soft to match the stuffing inside.
This version brings all the flavors you love about Mexican food to your plate. You could even halve the meat and add black beans instead if you want an almost burrito-like filling that would be delicious too.
