Recipe for mexi~peppers

Mexi~Peppers

Last night I was in the mood for anything other than chicken…and we had not had mexican in a while so a quick trip to the market was all I needed to get home and start chopping away.  My husband has been joining the no gluten/sugar/starch band wagon…on his own, I never push anyone to do what I am doing (ok well maybe a smidgy push to him..ok everyone) and he started to come around when he noticed his blood pressure dropping   I knew he would like the stuffed peppers but he normally would like some rice or refried beans somewhere…so I had to put a “binder/filler” in with the seasoned meat and the easiest go to for me is peeled eggplant.  It’s non offensive and takes on the flavor of the mexican seasoning very well and in the end he loved it and did not miss all the starchy~gluten-y~sugary filler after all “yay for Fred” Enjoy!!

  3. Next in a medium-sized pan over medium high heat melt your 1/8 cup of better and add your ground beef (again add a bit of salt) let brown for about 10 minutes breaking it up with your spoon (if you are following a ketogenic diet do not drain fat).
