Easy Stuffed Peppers (Jalapeno Popper Substitute)

This is a super easy recipe. Make and bake while getting the rest of dinner ready & serve up as a yummy appetizer.

Gather together:

  • 4 large green peppers like above
  • 1 can organic chick peas
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, I prefer the sheep's milk one
  • 2/3 - 3/4 cup grated cheese of your choice. I used a Manchego cheese, again, sheep's milk
  • spices to your taste, I used my pulled pork blend (see below)
  • Other spice options: curry powder, Italian blend spices, chili powder... play with it
  1. Cut peppers in half length wise
  2. Put 1/2 can of chick peas in a bowl and mash up
  3. Crumble feta over and blend in
  4. Add grated cheese and spices
  5. Blend all well together
  6. fill each 1/2 of pepper with stuffing mix & arrange on baking sheet so they will not tip over
  7. Bake at 350 F for about 20 minutes
  • Pulled pork blend: ground pepper, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, chili pepper, thyme, all-spice, turmeric    Use 1 Tbsp. of each spice except1 ½ tsp. allspice OR blend to your likes and tastes.

My apologies... I forgot to get a picture of the end product. They were yummy!
