The best part about this stuffed peppers keto recipe...
These stuffed peppers are going to feed and satisfy the whole family. If you are eating low carb or keto you can have them too! There is no rice in this recipe, instead, we riced cauliflower which takes on the flavor of anything it is seasoned with.
The cauliflower holds up well and doesn't get mushy. Trust me, even if you aren't a fan of cauliflower you will enjoy these. Keto stuffed peppers are a recipe all my friends are always looking for so these are perfect.

How Healthy Are Stuffed Peppers
My recipe is rather healthy as I have reached for healthier alternatives to some of the regular ingredients used in stuffed peppers. Lean meat, cauliflower rice and more. If you learn to cook in a healthy way you can make almost any recipe a healthier version.
Can I Swap The Meat In Keto Stuffed Peppers Recipe
Of Course. If you don't want the sausage you can replace with a different protein. Traditionally in Jambayla, you will find a variety of options. Here are some ideas for you. Ground beef and ground sausage together, chicken and shrimp, sausage and chicken, etc. Find what pairing works for you, or stick to one meat.
Do These Refrigerate Well
Not really. The peppers will break down quite a bit during the cooking process, so they will become mushy. The texture of the stuffed peppers will be different but the flavor is still tasty.
Best Way To Reheat Stuffed Peppers
I find placing the peppers on a baking sheet and tossing them in the oven works best for me. I just heat at 350 degrees until they are warmed through then slice up and serve. You can also opt to warm peppers up in a microwave as well.
Can I Make These Stuffed Peppers With Mini Peppers
What I would do if you want to make mini stuffed peppers is slice them lengthwise. They will be easier to fill with mixture. If you plan to use mini peppers then you need to dice up the chicken and other ingredients a lot smaller so the mixture can actually fit them in the peppers. This would be a tasty keto diet appetizer you could serve.
