Inside Out Stuffed Peppers

Thanks for sharing!


I am one of the lucky gals because I have a husband that loves to cook! But he doesn’t follow recipes, he just throws stuff together (I think that might be typical for a man).

One day he was trying to improve upon the classic stuffed peppers and this is how we ended up with inside-out stuffed peppers! Now, it is by far one of our all-time favorites! Even our young children love it! We eat this meal at least once a month.

Inside Out Stuffed Peppers

You won’t need to make anything else for dinner because this is a very filling meal with a great combination of flavors.

These peppers make fantastic leftovers and are naturally gluten-free!

We have made this with regular bell peppers, but now we prefer to use the multi-colored baby bell peppers.

Inside Out Stuffed Peppers

  • Cook 1 lb. of sausage, save grease.
  • Cook 2 cups of rice.
  • Wash the peppers and sear over high heat in a large cooking pot (bottom covered in oil) with a lid (Seriously, use a lid–it’s important and will save you a huge mess on your stove!!). Takes about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

Peppers as they are cooking

  • Once the skin on the peppers becomes loose and starts to turn a dark color, transfer to mixing bowl and place in freezer for 10 minutes. This is important because later you will be peeling the black part off the peppers and the rapid cooling helps make this process easier.

Peppers after they have been cooked

  • After 10 minutes, remove peppers from the freezer. The inside will still be hot. Cut off stems and remove seeds, rub peppers between fingers to peel off the pepper’s skin. Dice peppers into bite-size pieces.
