This past Saturday night, Danny made one of our favorite paleo recipes.  This recipe is so flavorful and filling without all of the extra “junk” in most stuffed pepper recipes.  The Guacamole makes this recipe, do not skip that!

Enjoy!
Original Recipe from Primally Inspired
Makes 4 stuffed peppers
Ingredients

2 large chicken breasts (or 3 medium)

1 medium onion, sliced

½ teaspoon each: dried parsley, dried dill, dried chives, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper

2tbs olive oil

4 peppers (I like using yellow or orange, but use what you like!), tops cut off and seeds cleaned out

½ cup hot sauce* (I use THIS)

¼ cup butter* or ghee

*this is the perfect ratio of butter to hot sauce for our tastes. If you like it really spicy, add more hot sauce and use less butter. Want it mild? Use less hot sauce and more butter.
Guacamole

2 avocados

½ – 1 jalapeno, seeded, and minced

1/8 of a medium red onion, finely chopped

2 – 3 tablespoons of cilantro, finely chopped

½ lime, juiced

sea salt, to taste

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix your dried spices together.
  3. Place your chicken breast and sliced onions in a single layer on a greased or parchment paper lined baking pan.
  4. Sprinkle the entire pan with dried spices.
  5. Drizzle olive oil over each chicken breast.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  7. While chicken is cooking, melt ¼ cup butter in a pot over medium low heat. Once melted add in hot sauce and stir. Set aside.
  8. If you are making guacamole, make it now (see instructions below).
  9. Once chicken is cooked, run a knife through the chicken and onions until chicken is in small bite size pieces.
  10. Combine chicken with the hot sauce mixture.
  11. Spoon chicken mixture evenly in all 4 peppers.
  12. Place stuffed peppers in a baking pan.
  13. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until peppers are softened to your liking.
  14. Serve with Guacamole. Enjoy!
