All about those stuffed veggies! Easy, versatile, nutritious and delicious! I stuffed peppers, mushrooms and squash in this one pan dish all a little differently for some options!
Half peppers (I used a mix of garden peppers: banana, poblano, anaheim) and remove seeds.
Mix up 1/2 pound of ground pork with salt, pepper and cumin (any other spices you want)
Sprinkle with mozzarella or pepper jack cheese
Options: add black beans, corn, rice, cilantro or diced tomatoes, any other ground meat you have.
Wipe off caps with moist towel, then take out stems and any extra meat inside the cap that is easily removed to save room for stuffing.
Mix 1/4 pound of chorizo and 1/4 pound ground pork with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Stuff caps so they leave a hill on the top.
Sprinkle with parmesan cheese
Options: Mix meat with parmesan or goat cheese, add parsley, fresh garlic or any other ground meat you have.
Cut zuchinni or other summer squash lengthwise. Scoop out the soft seedy part to make a boat.
Mix 1/2 cup chorizo with any added spices you want (chorizo is already full of spices so no need here). Stuff the squash with meat full.
Add a thin layer of mozzarella. Spoon over tomato sauce (spaghetti, marinara, or pesto even)
Options: black beans, rice, corn or cilantro)
Sprinkle all with a light sprinkling of olive oil or butter the pan before you add veggies (helps with sticking to the pan). Cook in 400* oven for 20-25 mins until veggies are tender and meat is cooked through.
