Yummy Spicy Chicken Stuffed Sweet Peppers

These spicy chicken stuffed peppers are yummy and easy to make. I whipped them up in seriously 15 minutes. and I don't have skillz :)

Warning: This dish is *highly customizable* - I hope you don't mind. :)

What you will need:
- a food processor
- toothpicks
- 2 chicken breasts*
- 2 jalapenos*
- smoked chipotle tabasco sauce
- 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese*
- 20 sweet peppers

*the meat, pepper and cheese that you stuff with can be whatever you have on hand

1. Cook chicken breasts, and chop it up in the food processor to your ground consistency of choice.
2. Dump chicken into a stove top pan on low heat.
3. Put two jalapenos (I didn't seed or core mine because I like the heat) coarsely chopped into the food processor to chop more. Add jalapenos to the ground chicken in the pan.
4. Add 1 cup of shredded cheese.
5. Add 2-3 tablespoons of smoked chipotle tabasco sauce.
6. Heat up on pan and stir until cheese has melted and the mixture is all mixed up and conformable.
7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
8. Cut the tops off of your sweet peppers and core. This sounds like a pain but the cores on these peppers are not deep and it is easy. Keep the tops because you'll need them later.
9. Stuff the peppers using a spoon or your fingers. Stuff it full.
10. Put the pepper tops back on the peppers and secure the tops with toothpicks.
11. Spray non-stick spray on a cookie tray (COOKIE?!?!?!) and put the peppers on the tray.
12. Bake the peppers for 20 minutes, flipping the peppers midway through.

This would also be good with sausage, ground beef or turkey. Really whatever meat you have on hand.
