Stuffed Peppers are one of my go-to gluten free meals, whether they’re filled with Buffalo Chicken, Spicy Eggplant, Italian Ground Turkey and Mushrooms or Chorizo, Corn and Black Beans, I love how easy they are to make and toss in the oven, slow cooker or on the grill!

Chorizo Stuffed Bell Peppers

To make these chorizo stuffed bell peppers, saute onion, jalapeno and garlic with Mighty Spark Ground Chorizo, then toss in some mexicorn, diced tomatoes with green chilies and black beans. Stuff this mixture in bell pepper halves, then toss them on the grill for 30 minutes. About 5 minutes before you pull them off the grill, sprinkle with a little cotija cheese.

These stuffed bell peppers are perfect for meal prep or making ahead. The chorizo, black bean & corn filling can be made ahead of time, then stuffed into the peppers right before cooking, or go ahead and stuff the peppers ahead of time, then grill or bake as many as you want at a time.

Don’t have a grill? Don’t worry, you can also make these stuffed peppers in the oven, by baking them at 350°F for 20-25 minutes.

I used Mighty Spark Gringo Chorizo in this recipe because it’s simply the best chorizo out there! It’s made with ghost peppers and Mexican seasonings, giving it so much flavor and just the right amount of heat!

In addition to Mighty Spark products being totally delicious (and they totally are! See how I used their Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage in these Grilled Sausage Potato Pepper Bowls!), they’re also committed to giving back. In fact, for every Mighty Spark product purchased, they donate a meal to a hungry child.

You really can’t beat amazing products, combined with an amazing mission!
