19 Stuffed Pepper Recipes That Make Great Weeknight Dinners
Long before we were stuffing avocado halves, zucchini boats, and spaghetti squash, stuffed peppers reigned supreme. The dish has been a longtime favorite of home cooks and food bloggers alike, probably because it’s as playful as it is delicious. Aside from being cute and tasty, stuffed peppers are also super versatile—as long as you use a mild, non-spicy variety of pepper, you can stuff it with pretty much anything and expect great results. And they’re always Instagram-worthy!
The most common type of stuffed pepper you’re likely to stumble on is one wth a Tex Mex-style rice-and-bean filling, but there are so many exciting ways to experiment with the dish that go way beyond this. These 19 recipes include ideas so creative, you’ll want to try them out as soon as possible. Get pumped for options stuffed with chickpeas and feta, buffalo chicken, and spinach and artichoke. There’s even one that tastes like lasagna! And since they’re inherently veggie-packed—or, really, veggie-wrapped—as well as adorable and tasty, they’re worth making for more reasons than one.
