Jambalaya Stuffed Peppers
In this healthy stuffed peppers recipe, a delicious jambalaya filling of chicken and Cajun spices gets baked inside of bell peppers. Traditional jambalaya is made with green bell peppers, but you can use green, yellow, or orange peppers (or a mix) for this dish. Look for bell peppers with even bottoms, so that they stand upright on their own.
Tip: We prefer homemade Cajun seasoning, because it has more flavor and fewer preservatives than the store-bought versions. For salt-free Cajun seasoning, mix 1 Tbsp. paprika, 1 tsp. each onion powder and garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. each dried oregano and thyme, and 1/4 tsp. each cayenne and ground pepper. You will have slightly more than you need for this recipe; use it to season eggs, chicken, fish, or vegetables. (Want to have extra on hand? Multiply these amounts by four.) Store in a covered jar for up to 6 months.
