Grilled Sausage Stuffed Peppers

Updated on July 30, 2014

I came up with this recipe for Grilled Sausage Stuffed Peppers as an alternative to the traditional stuffed peppers recipe that many of us know and love. 

During the summer I like to be outdoors grilling just about everything I can and I thought stuffed peppers would be so delicious on the grill. I made a few changes and added different ingredients for a fun and tasty dish. 

This is a great meal for company or anytime you want to dine outside.


Notes

1. For a vegetarian meal, substitute 2 cups of cooked rice for the sausage.

2. These can be made a day ahead up to the point of grilling.

3. Make a little tray out of aluminum foil to put on the bottom of each pepper. It helps the peppers stay upright during grilling and also prevents burning on the bottom.

Serving Size

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 large red or green bell peppers
  • 1 lb chorizo or sweet Italian sausage
  • 1 cup chunky tomato salsa
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1 14 -15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups cheddar jack cheese, seperated
  • Sour cream (optional)

Instructions

  1. Remove tops and seeds from bell peppers.
  2. Cook peppers in boiling water for 5 minutes.
  3. Drain and add cold water.
  4. Meanwhile grill sausages, turning often, until cooked through.
  5. Chop sausage into small pieces.
  6. In a large bowl combine sausage, salsa, onion, black beans and 1 cup cheddar jack cheese.
  7. Dry peppers and wrap bottoms in aluminum foil.
  8. Stuff peppers with sausage mixture and top with remaining cup of cheese.
  9. Grill over medium heat for about 15 minutes or until peppers are cooked through and cheese is melted.
  10. Serve with sour cream, if desired.

      Sure looks yummy, must try, great idea to stand them on aluminum foil so you don't get the bottoms burnt.
