Lazy Stuffed Pepper Dippers

I have been in a little bit of a recipe rut lately – which means, I am making poor nutrition choices in the kitchen. As a result, I have asked my boyfriend to dig up some recipes that he would like to eat for dinner a couple of times a week. This recipe is a modified version of one of the recipes that he found.
So – the original recipe was stuffed poblano peppers. Which would have been awesome…. If the poblano peppers I ordered from hungry harvest arrived as planned. Unfortunately, they did not and instead I received a number of small colored peppers.
Not a big deal, this little mix up allowed me to be creative!

What you need:
1lb ground beef
Diced white onion
Chili powder
Favorite salsa (red, green, spicy, etc.)
Garlic – finely diced, 2 cloves
Small colored peppers
Cast iron skillet/grill/broiler
Frozen corn (1/2 c)
Shredded Cheddar Cheese

What to do:

  1. In your cast iron skillet, brown the ground beef.
  2. Once browned, add the onions and cook until soft
  3. Add Chili powder (about 1 ½ tbsp.), frozen corn, finely diced garlic, and salsa (about ¼ c)
    a. Cook until heated through.
  4. Cut the peppers in half and take out the seeds. I have a cast iron grill pan that I used to quickly grill the peppers. This could be done in the broiler or on a grill, if you have one. Put a little oil on them and grill/broil until soft and a little charred.
  5. Position the peppers and top with your ground beef mixture. Add cheese if desired. Use the little peppers to dip into the ground beef mixture or eat with a fork and knife! Yum!
