Easy Stuffed Peppers | Chorizo And Cheese!

The World of “dinner” is a complex one. We tend to think of it as a simple process of preparing foods. Unfortunately, it can be extremely complicated, depending on the number of ingredients one uses and the way in which one prepares them. For example, my partner and I use to eat “dinner” every night, but as our tastes and tastes have changed, so has the food we eat.

Your stuffed peppers are boring. You know exactly how they are supposed to look. They are stuffed with ground beef, chorizo, cheese, rice, and spices. They should have a tomato sauce poured over them, too. Nothing amazing, nothing creative. You just know they have to have all of those things. But they don’t. You are bored. Bored with your stuffing, bored with your stuffing recipe. And you are ready to do something new.

How Long Do Stuffed Peppers Take To Cook?

Cook time of the peppers is definitely a personal preference. Do you want slight bite to your pepper or do you want it softer and a little charred. We personally prefer a slight bite so 20 minutes in the oven is the perfect amount of cook time.If you want a softer, more charred pepper you can cook them in the oven under broil for a couple minutes before stuffing them! The peppers will then cook further in the oven once stuffed and carry less bite.
