Eric and I recently embarked on a Whole30 food challenge. To be honest, we cheated on day 11 … =( However, we still intend to try our best at eating healthy and Paleo recipes are a great way to do that. Tonight we had Mexcian stuffed bell peppers and they were pretty yummy! I definitely would recommend this recipe to anyone, Paleo or not =)
- 1lb Lean Ground Beef (grass fed ideal)
- 1 Chopped Onion
- 1 Can tomatoes with green chillies
- 1 hand full chopped Cilantro
- 1/2 can Black Olives sliced
- 4 Yellow Bell Peppers
- 1 tub fresh salsa
- 3 Avocados
- 6oz can of tomato paste (optional)
Preheat Oven to 350. Brown beef with 2 Tablespoons Chilli Powder, 1/2 Tablespoon Garlic Salt, 1 Tablespoon Cumin, 1/2 Tablespoon Red pepper, 1 Tablespoon Paprika, 1 Tablespoon Onion Powder, and 1 Teaspoon Oregano.
While it is browning, chop the white onion and cilantro. Add onion and cilantro to the beef and saute another 5 minutes. Half and seed the bell peppers. Take one half bell pepper, finely dice it. Add diced bell pepper, canned tomatoes, 6oz can of tomato paste (if you like ‘em creamy), and olives to the meat mixture.
Spray a glass pan with olive oil and place bell peppers open side up. Push the meat mixture to one side for the pan and tilt it so that any access liquid drains to the other side. Spoon out any excess liquid. fill each pepper with the meat mixture. Bake for 30 minutes.
While they are baking, mash up the avocados and 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder. When they are done scoop some guacamole on top and use salsa as desired.
I found this above recipes at Fast Paleo, a paleo recipe sharing site and you should definitely keep it on your radar if you are currently trying to spruce up your paleo diet!
