Spicy Stuffed Peppers
Tex Mex Grill Blend: Coarse Salt, Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Coriander, Cumin, Thyme & Black Pepper
The spices are ready to mix. I used a combination of chile powder & chipotle chile powder
The final Tex Mex Grill Blend with the chipotle chile powder packed a bit of a punch
The stuffing used ground beef, breakfast sausage, garlic, Tex Mex Grill Blend, egg, cumin, cayenne, chopped parsley & wine
The ground beef & sausage were mixed first with the white wine & then the other herbs & spices were added
The finished stuffing was refrigerated for an hour to let the flavors blend
The green peppers were halved lengthwise & stuffed
The peppers were grilled for 10 minutes pepper side down
Then the peppers were flipped meat side down. I used a spatula above & below to flip these
Stuffed peppers with grill marks, there’s a rare sight
These pepper were very tasty with a bit of a kick to the stuffing. The peppers were soft but still had a little snap to them

This spicy dish was my first attempt from my newest cookbook, The Tex-Mex Grill and Backyard Barbacoa Cookbook The recipe was called Grilled Stuffed Peppers and started of by having you make a spice blend for the stuffing. The book offered several choices including using a commercial version. I elected to use one from the book called Tex Mex Grill mix. It gave you a choice of chile powder to use and I used a blend of regular and chipotle chile powder. The stuffing was mixed and refrigerated for an hour to let the flavors blend. The peppers were grilled on both sides for about 10 minutes per side. I was a bit surprised to see the meat side got grilled too. I made sure to oil the grill well to avoid the soft meat filling from sticking. These stuffed peppers were great!! I am NOT a stuffed pepper fan and these were the first I’d enjoy being served.
