Homemade Stuffed Peppers are Paleo AND easy to make. Great for large families on a budget with picky eaters. Go stuff your peppers!

My family loves Stuffed Peppers, and I especially love that they are eating dinner. I’ve stuffed my peppers with chicken, turkey, Italian sausage (good luck trying to find a Paleo version), and with just plain vegetables, making these Vegan peppers. This recipe is by far our favorite rendition.

I love using colorful elements in my dishes, so when I make these, I usually use red, yellow, and orange peppers. Adding colorful ingredients is an excellent way to fancy up any meal and also a great way to get your kids interested in eating healthy foods.
