These Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers are filled with creamy Buffalo Chicken with a hint of heat then topped with a layer of melty cheese for an easy to make dinner recipe.
California is acting crazyyy.
The weather was finally cooling down, starting to feel like Fall and now I look at the weather and it says that it’s supposed to be on the 90’s on Thanksgiving.
Who ever heard of 90 degree weather on Thanksgiving? I guess my plans on sweater weather are out the window. Normally I like when the weather is warmer, especially if there is a pool involved but for some reason it just doesn’t feel like Thanksgiving when it’s really hot outside.
Anyway, I digress. I’m off to go camping tonight so maybe I’ll appreciate that warmer weather after all!
So on to the food… I love stuffed peppers. They’re super easy to make, taste delicious and the presentation is fun too. In my never ending crusade for putting Buffalo Chicken into everything, I’ve continued with these Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers.
Pro-tip: You could make these Buffalo Turkey Stuffed Peppers if you have a lot of leftover turkey after Thanksgiving next week. But you do you.
I’m gonna do me. Which apparently means Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers in 90 degree weather next week.
Have a great weekend!
