Crockpot stuffed peppers

I’m actually surprised it’s taken me this long to get here. As in this recipe here. Generally I’m pretty good at putting things I love together and then do like Tim Gunn says and Make It Work. Hence my love for blogging about food, eating and watching tv, cleaning and dancing, drinking wine and doing anything…shall I go on?

2 stuffed peppers

Therefor using that mathematical knowledge, it seems a bit odd that it’s taken me all the time I’ve been crafting this ol blog of mine to put together a recipe that involves peppers, hot sauce and my crockpot. A Jessica trifecta if you will.

A Jessfectica? Hmm.

3 stuffed peppers

Bing, bang, boom.

4 stuffed peppers

And while not every combination of wonderful things that seem like a good idea at first work out… (I’m looking at you, pleather leggings and 5″ heels that I once wore to a bachelorette party, and thankfully only got propositioned for hooking one time that night) … this one was pure no-fuss-dinner-ready-when-you-get-home magic, my friends.

Crockpot Buffalo Turkey Stuffed Peppers
Serves: 3-4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Totaly cook time: 6-7 hours
You’ll Need:
3 med or 4 small green bell peppers, tops and seeds removed
1 lb ground turkey
1 med. yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup hot sauce of your choice (I use Frank’s RedHot.. always) + extra for serving
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
1 cup water

Directions: Spray a large pan with olive oil and sautee chopped onion over med-high heat for about 5 minutes, or until translucent. Add garlic and cook for another 30 seconds. Add ground turkey and parsley, and sautee until browned (about 5-7 minutes). Mix in hot sauce and stir until evenly distributed. Spoon turkey mixture into the peppers and place them in your crockpot. Pour water into the bottom of the crockpot and place the lid ontop, cooking for at least 6 hours on low. (I cooked mine for almost 7 and they were nice and soft.) Once removed from the crockpot, sprinkle with extra hot sauce and enjoy!

And in case you’re wondering, those leggings later made an appearance when my husband and I went as Dog the Bounty Hunter and his wife Beth for Halloween one year, and after that directly into the trash where they belonged. Although don’t think I haven’t almost repurchased a pair from Target in the last year.

When will I learn.

  1. stuffed peppers are one of my favorite things when I’m low carbing it. I use taco seasoning and marinara sauce (sounds weird but so good) for the meat. I need to try cooking the peppers in the crock pot!

  2. I think the reason why we love each other is our fondness for putting hot sauce in/on/around everthing.
