The Verdict

As I took the first bite, I wasn’t sure what to make of this. After 8 hours in the crock pot, these stuffed peppers were extremely mushy, to the point of falling apart. However, after mixing it together with some crispy Green Beans a la Josh, I quickly overcame my objections to the texture and fell in love with the flavor.

Be warned: the chorizo has some kick by itself, so I left out the jalapeños this time (my wife doesn’t like spicy food as much as I do).

As you can see, this is a very fatty meal, packing in 28g of fat for only 20g of protein. I think this might pair nicely with some chicken breast if you want to get some more lean protein in there. Also, for the non-paleo among you, these suckers are just begging for some rice and beans.

Thoughts for next time:

  • They were a bit too mushy; try baking them next time instead
