Now that I am trying the low-carb lifestyle,  it’s not so easy to just stop at a fast food restaurant to grab food if I haven’t cooked. This recipe is great because it’s how quick and easy to make these tasty stuffed peppers come together. You can have this delicious, low-carb entrée on the table in just over half an hour without much fuss because the spicy Chorizo sausage delivers a ton of flavor without adding a lot of other seasonings. As an added bonus, these peppers freeze extremely well, so you can easily double or triple this recipe for even faster weeknight meals later.
