Welcome! I am so happy you chose to gather around my table. My name is Mia Swinehart and I am a registered dietitian with a passion for simple healthy recipes, women's hormonal health, and overall wellness!
Incredibly simple stuffed poblano peppers- the perfect healthy + quick weeknight dinner with a kick!
The kind of dish that you can whip up in no time, and the ultimate comfort food! Stuffed peppers always make me nostalgic- it was definitely one of my mom’s go-to dishes. Anyone else? These are delicious like the classic, but with a spicy kick!
The stuffing is a simple mix of peppers and onions, grass-fed beef, salsa, and some seasonings. You’ll be shocked at how easy it is to make! The stuffing then gets packed into the paper halves (make sure to take out the seeds- these babies are still spicy without the seeds!), and topped with shredded cheese for that melty cheese factor everyone loves!
These are so delicious as is, but if you’re feeling some nacho vibes then go ahead and dip some tortilla chips in for the best combo!
I found some perfect poblano peppers are my local farmer’s market, but you can typically find them in the grocery store! You can also sub regular peppers if you want to ditch the spice– I would guess 3 regular bell peppers would be perfect for the amount of filling this makes!
This makes a great low carb option if that’s what you’re looking for, but you can totally serve some brown rice or quinoa with these for a little something extra! I’m not anti-carbs by any means, but sometimes it’s just nice to have the option 🙂
One of the easiest ways to get some more veggies in your diet is it stuff them with something delicious, am I right?! You won’t even notice you’re devouring an entire pepper because the stuffing is that good.
Plus, these reheat well for the perfect meal prep dish! I made some for dinner and was so happy to have leftovers the next day to just pop in the oven (or microwave) and eat up. Easy peasy! I’m all about simple, filling, and nourishing meals. This one definitely checks all the boxes, and I think you guys are going to love it!
Sooooo easy and tastes great! I used ground turkey instead of beef!
Very quick and easy! Another tasty yet simple recipe by Mia
Thank you so much for the note Vicky! xoxo
So quick, satisfying, and easy for a weeknight dinner.
I’ve made this several times as a meal prep – it is so quick, and so flavorful! We absolutely love it in this household! I like to pair with quinoa, and usually another vegetable – so good!
Thank you Rana! xo
Delish! Super easy to make and heats up for left overs SO WELL. Best part is that its so flavorful yet healthy so you feel good eating it!

Looking to make this for dinner this week. What sides would you serve with??
A side salad, some rice or cauliflower rice, or roasted potatoes!
