These Stuffed Peppers Made In The Crock Pot Are So Easy

It wouldn’t be Fall without a classic recipe made in the crock pot now would it?! Better YET, it wouldn’t be game-day-season around here without my spicy, juicy, and pretty darn irresistible crock pot stuffed peppers.

P.S. This is also how we enjoyed the playoff games the other night! OMG! I couldn’t breathe. I ran toward the TV a gazillion times, screaming at the team, all while holding onto my plate and my big ol’ peppers! Such an exciting time for Chicago sports fans!

What Ingredients Are Used For Stuffed Peppers?

This is just the epitome of autumn for me. Right here. RIGHT HERE. I would dive in straight through this screen if I could.

These babes are stuffed with what is the best pepper-stuffing according to me, and I think I have a pretty reliable palate.

The thing with stuffed peppers is that it’s alllllll about the stuffing so ya better use what is good for ya, and that includes;

Hot pork sausage + Hunt’s Recipe Ready Paste + Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes + loads of garlic + onions + seasonings.

Stuffed Peppers Recipe

The best thing to happen to this pork sausage is that pretty swirl of Hunt’s Recipe Ready Paste. For one, the paste is already seasoned, and two, it is made with all-natural tomatoes picked at the peak of ripeness. Hunt’s Recipe Ready Paste is also a convenient way to add tomato paste to any dish with two tablespoons of pre-measured tomato paste, which is the most common serving size for recipes.

Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

I always want to feel good about what I’m serving to my family, and Hunt’s makes all that possible.

Turn These Into Beef, Turkey Or Chicken Stuffed Peppers

My OTHER favorite thing about stuffed peppers is that they’re customizable. I use pork sausage ’cause it’s da best, but you could use ground beef, turkey or chicken. So much room for possibilities! But don’t omit the tomato paste and tomatoes. You want that juicy, moist, sweet and tangy stuffing that only the paste and tomatoes can provide.

    Those pouches are so neat! I often only need a small amount and the rest gets wasted.

    1. When I use the canned version and there are left overs…I make little cubes in shrink wrap and place them in the freezer ..for the next time you only need a tablespoon!

    These look – and sound – so very delicious!

    And goodness, I love the person who thought of packaging tomato paste not in cans – I rarely used the whole can and hate to have anything go to waste!
