Dinner

Couscous stuffed Peppers

Left over chicken and half jar of salsa.  Three peppers and a box of couscous.  That is all you need for this wonderful, hearty spicy dish.  Each bite brings a flavor explosion in your mouth ! This is one of the best dishes I have made–super easy and amazingly delicious.  Try this please and let me know what you think !

Ingredients:

Leftover shredded chicken ( or you can shred a chicken breast)

3/4 cup salsa

1 box of garlic and olive oil flavored couscous

3 peppers, halved and de-seeded (I used the red, yellow and orange–green will work just fine–the taste will be a little more peppery)

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

salt, pepper, chilli powder and cumin to taste.

Method

Cook the whole box of couscous according to the package direction and let it cool.

Meanwhile, half and de-seed the peppers.

In a bowl, mix the couscous, chicken, salsa, salt, pepper, chilli powder and cumin.

Spray the pepper halves with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Stuff the peppers with the couscous mixture and top with breadcrumbs.  You could also top it with pepperjack or cheddar cheese.

 

Bake in a 375F preheated oven till the pepper are soft and the bread crumbs are golden brown, about 45 mins.

 

Serve hot !

  1. I love your style of cooking- much like mine, simple, not too many ingredients, flavorful but not too much added salt and yummy. Thanks for checking out my blog too! 🙂

  2. Lovely! I recently blogged on brown rice stuffed peppers…because I had a bunch of rice in the fridge! Grains shine with just a few ingredients to keep them company. Thanks for stopping over at veganchopnchat!
