Keto Stuffed Peppers

If you’re on a keto diet, then you’ll love these stuffed peppers. Stuffed with a chili cheese mixture that’s low-carb—but still irresistible—they’re a fun take on stuffed peppers, which typically include rice or another hearty grain. Be sure to top them with lots of cheddar! 

Change up the filling.

Not a fan of ground beef? You can swap in ground chicken, turkey, or lamb. Also try a mixture of ground beef and pork, which will add a little extra fattiness and flavor.

Make these ahead.

This is a great make-ahead recipe. Stuff the peppers, then cover and refrigerate. When ready to bake, top the peppers with cheese and bacon and follow the instructions below. 

Reheat the leftovers.

These are also just as easy to reheat! Place the peppers back in the oven until the mixture is warmed through. Top with a little extra cheese for good measure.
