These Peppers Have The Right Stuff

Stuffed peppers are a beautiful fresh dinner idea. Using our grass fed beef as well as local peppers (thanks Broxburn) and others fresh ingredients, make this recipe a powerhouse! It can be made KETO by eliminating the grain/rice in the mixture. We found LOTS of great recipes on-line and simply inserted our local ingredients. Here’s how we made these beauties! :
