I love stuffed peppers. Like really love them. I have a recipe for original stuffed peppers here that are sadly in need of a facelift. Hey don’t judge, I know pictures sell but those bad boys were the beginning of this blog so I’ve come to love them. Besides the flavor in them was what mattered to me at that point and I wanted to share it with the world!

Sharing is something I’ve grown accustom to. I am completely in love with what I do here at Tornadough Alli. Have you heard the old saying where if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life? Yeah, that’s me. I’ve got a long way to go to be where I want to be, but I’m happy of how far I have come in my first year. It’s been one heck of a ride and I’m still having a good old-time creating.

And creating I have done. These Chorizo Stuffed Peppers are off the hook. Seriously, I give them an A+. Tender green peppers, melty cheesy cream cheese, a healthy twist with corn and black beans and a Mexican cheese blend. Holy Hannah everyone, these bad boys have the flavor I’ve been dreaming about. The heat is balanced out nicely with the cheeses and then you get a crispness from the veggies. Win-win all the way I say.

  1. I’m loving this recipe. I’ve made stuffed pepper with ground beef but I just know that the Chorizo would be so good. I’m going to have to give it a try.

  2. I know my family would love these. I think I would switch it up a little and use a hatch chile pepper instead of the bell pepper! Yum! Such a great recipe

  3. Ah, these look absolutely scrumptious! I used to LOVE roasted stuffed peppers when I was younger, but I’ve never had them with a Mexican twist-how cool! Definitely pinning this recipe to give it a try. I’ve never had chorizo before, but your photos make it look super great! #MMBH

  4. Omg these were the bomb!!!! I used your recipe more as a guideline. I don’t eat meat so I used Trader Joe’s Soyrizo and added Mexican rice in the mix and put a slice of pepper jack on top before I baked. Even my mom who hates all of my vegetarian alternative food loved this. Definitely recommend!
