VSG surgery: Cheese stuffed peppers recipe

I post quite a few of my culinary creations on the FB fan page and inevitably in the comments there will be "Give me the recipe!" So that's exactly what I'm doing today. The recipe is easy, definitely WLS friendly, low carb, and even the normies in my life like it. Here we go! Let the ingredient round up commence!!

Sweet Peppers
Handful of John Soules fajita chicken
1 box cream cheese-softened
1/2 block of cheddar cheese (the small one) grated
Handful of mozzarella or another cheese ( i used 5 Italian cheese blend)
about 1/4 cup of feta
1/2 teaspoon of garlic
dash of oregano  
optional sliced almonds  
optional 1/2 of a jalapeno for color and heat
bowl
baking dish
Available at Costco or Sams. Great for quick meals!
Available at Costco or Sams, too.
Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl add all of the cheeses and the garlic and blend until mixed. Next take the chicken, mince it and add it to the cheese mixture. At this point you can add in the minced jalapeno if you chose to use it. Mix again. Take peppers and cut lengthwise. Carefully remove the seeds and any ribs as they can impart a slightly bitter flavor. Using a spoon, fill the peppers with the chicken and cheese mixture and place them in the baking dish.
Used a few jalapenos cause I had them on hand. They're the long ones
Once you've filled it up, top the peppers with almonds and pop it in the oven for 30 to 45 minutes or so. After that time, remove from the oven and.... Voila
Mmmm. They're really good
Happy cooking!

  4. I love those little peppers. I will definitely keep this recipe in mind. It looks like I have most of the ingredients except those lovely peppers. I had them in my hand at the grocery store. I am going away and not purchasing too much produce. It would just go to waste with my husband at home looking for cold cuts!

  5. Were it not for me, the peppers would go to waste in my house, too. My husband could eat like a teenager for the rest of his life. lol
