Fall is a very busy season for most of us and drifting off to eat unhealthy food is very easy. That’s why today I want to show you one of my favorite recipes that I make in fall. These spicy stuffed peppers are so easy and simple!

If you cannot live without spicy food, this recipe is for you! These spicy stuffed bell peppers are made with chorizo and topped with Mexican blend. I know people who are not a fan of stuffed bell peppers and devoured over these!

To make these stuffed bell peppers I used Mann’s Monterey Risotto Nourish Bowls to fill the peppers. These nourish bowls are total life savers. If you have a busy life but care about what you feed yourself and your family, these bowls are going to be your best friend.

Monterey Risotto nourish bowls come with a pack of cooked risotto and a pack of delicious roasted garlic sauce, you open the packs and mix them with veggies in the bowl then heat everything in the microwave and then you can enjoy a perfect meal or side. Or you can use them in a recipe, like I used them as filling for my spicy stuffed peppers.

Notes and tips to make these spicy stuffed peppers:

  • I used soy chorizo in this recipe. You can use pork chorizo or any other type of meat as long as it’s cooked and spicy.
  • Store-bought salsa would work as good as homemade salsa. I used a basic store-bought salsa but I think fancier ones like pineapple or peach salsa would be great, too.
  • The amount of cheese used in the recipe completely depends on how much you love cheese. For best results, make sure your filling is fully covered with shredded cheese.
  • You can serve these stuffed peppers with some bread on the side. I always love to have a couple slices of sourdough.
  • If you want to make these stuffed peppers ahead of time, prepare the dish, cover with salsa and place the bell peppers. Fill them with Nourish bowls and chorizo. Cover and store in the fridge for up to 2 days. When you’re ready to bake them, top with cheese and bake in the oven.

    Stuffed peppers are such a great and hearty dinner. I love how fast they come together, especially for a busy weeknight. The nourish bowl must make it even easier, what a great idea! These must have such great flavor with the chorizo and the roasted garlic sauce!
