Chicken Sausage Stuffed Peppers

Discover the story
Bring on tasty seasonal meals that look bright and festive!

This week’s $20 Tuesday recipe is this Chicken Sausage Stuffed Peppers and they look just like a perfect summertime meal should!

For this dish, we used store-made chicken sausage and amped it up by adding onions and garlic and a little cheese on top! This little hack saves a lot of time, and still makes for a delish meal.

WOT we love about this dish: is you can serve it with an easy salad or your favorite potato dish. You can also wrap them into a soft tortilla for an instant flavor fiesta (and pair with our all-time favorite, Erica McConaughey’s Guacamole).

Give these a try and let us know what you think.
