The sausage stuffed peppers recipe is one of our family's favorite dishes. We have it at least once a month. This week's recipe is a twist on the traditional sausage and peppers and is great for an appetizer or a quick snack for your next sports game. While we are more dairy-free in our household, you can also use regular shredded Mexican cheese.
Sausage Stuffed Peppers Recipe Ingredients:
One bag of mini red and orange peppers (cut in half, cut off stem and seed)
1 lb of ground pork sausage
One tablespoon olive oil
One packet of low-sodium fajita (add water according to the recipe)
½-2/4 cup of Mexican Shredded Cheese (dairy-free OR regular)
Sausage Stuffed Peppers Recipe Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a skillet, add olive oil to the hot pan and then add pork sausage without skin. Break it up with a wooden spoon until almost completely brown.
Add the packet of low sodium fajita and the water according to the packet. Mix well and cook for an additional 10 minutes until the water evaporates and is left with a thick sauce.
Cut the peppers in half and take out the seeds and stem. This part is a little time-consuming, if you have help, it will go quicker.
Place all of them on a nonstick cookie sheet . Only use the ones that are larger in size. It gives you more room to place the filling.
Add the filling to each pepper. Then, top with the shredded cheese of your choice.
Bake for 15-25 minutes or until the peppers are softened. Take it out and let it sit for 10 minutes if you want.

This Stuffed peppers recipe will help you get your next party started right. I also enjoyed them for a quick snack with the kids. However, if you use them, you can swap out the pork sausage for beef to create a totally new dish. I hope you try it and taste it for yourself.
