Picking Your Peppers

If you've never made stuffed peppers I have a quick tip for you! When picking your peppers in the produce section, make sure you pick peppers that have even bottoms so that way your peppers will stand up straight and not fall over.  You don't want the peppers to fall over in the oven and make a huge mess.

If you do happen to pick peppers that aren't even on the bottom, you can also wrap aluminum foil around the bottoms to help them stand up.

Making the Chili Stuffed Peppers with Homemade Chili

For this recipe, I used my Instant Pot Homemade Chili recipe.  If you would rather make the chili on the stove, no worries.  You can make this recipe on the stove top easily,  it just takes more time for the vegetables to get tender and for the flavors to come through.
