These stuffed Mexi peppers make a healthy breakfast, lunch, or dinner and can be baked in the oven or the slow cooker. Here is a tip when preparing the peppers. If the bottoms of your peppers are a little uneven, make sure they are snug in the pan so they don’t move and the ingredients don’t spill. You can prop them up with little balls of tin foil if you have trouble filling them.
