Yesterday the kiddos and I went to the grocery store and found green peppers on a HUMONGOUS sale – $0.89 each!!! That is over half off what they normally are! So I decided to buy them to make stuffed peppers. When I got home I decided that I wanted to try something else other than the recipe that I always make from my mom (which is here). I made them super duper spicy! Almost too spicy for me, but Lover Boy liked them.

Super Spicy Stuffed Peppers

In a medium pan cook 1lb ground beef - add 1tsp oregano, 1tsp parsley, 1/2tsp chili powder, 1/4tsp garlic, S& P to taste. Once the beef is cooked add 1 1/2c of any tomato/spaghetti sauce you have. I had a Five Cheese sauce that I added
In the meantime cook some small noodles. I always make my peppers with rice, but decided to change it up this time
I have a ginormous bag of these peppers that I'm working on using up - so I pulled out some of the meat/sauce mixture and set it aside for the kids. I then added 5 of these bad boys chopped up
I left in the seeds (the spiciest part)
In a large pot bring water to a boil and par boil gutted peppers...until they are slightly tender with a fork (about 7 minutes)
Add drained noodles to the meat/sauce mixture
Stir into the noodles a large handfull of any ol' hot pepper cheese you have (ie: jalapeno, etc)
Drain peppers, fill with meat/noodle mixture, top with more cheese and bacon bit. Place in a pyrex dish and bake at 350 degrees until the cheese has melted on top
Ooey Gooey yumminess!

If you can handle the heat give them a try…if not, just take out the diced peppers and substitute the hot pepper cheese for cheddar cheese. They will turn out delicious, I promise!! Let me know if you give these a try!
