Stuffed Peppers (ground meat of choice)

All of the recipes on my website are gluten-free and dairy-free but full of flavor and family favorites. Most of the time when I have people over for dinner, they don't even realize they are so healthy. Well... maybe my Dad cause he's always looking for the bread. 

I've even watched children gooble up these dinners without a complaint! I'd love to hear from you! Let me know. Did your family like it? Leave me a comment below. Did you put your own take on the recipe? Please share with me!

1 chopped poblano pepper
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp garlic powder

1 cup brown rice (optional; add cooked rice to meat mixture)
Dash of hot sauce if you like it spicy!!

4)    In a skillet, sauté onion on medium for a few minutes until a little soft
5)    Add meat and sauté till brown
6)    Return this mixture to the bowl (no need to drain because these meats are extra lean) and add the diced tomatoes, brown rice (if desired) and spinach

8)    Place a little water in the bottom of pan, place cover on, and bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes or until the pepper is soft
