Breakfast Burrito Stuffed Peppers

Lately, I’ve been making a much greater effort to watch the amount of carbs in my diet. I of course still enjoy carbs, (I flipping LOVE bread after all!) but I’m really conscious to make sure that I’m cutting unnecessary carbs out of my diet so that when I really want to enjoy a brownie or some breadsticks I don’t feel guilty about it. I guess you could say I’m budgeting my carbs wisely. Which is why I really love these Breakfast Burrito Stuffed Peppers!

These stuffed peppers are the perfect solution to having great breakfast burrito flavor but without all of the carbs!


I absolutely love and adore breakfast burritos, but having an entire tortilla with my burrito first thing in the morning usually makes me feel sluggish and gross. Putting my burrito filling inside a juicy, sweet pepper and baking it seemed like the perfect solution to my breakfast burrito cravings. These stuffed peppers are packed with flavor, but they feel so much lighter and cleaner. Plus, aren’t they beautiful?

 You could pretty much fill these babies with whatever you like best in your burritos–I tend to really love mushrooms, eggs, sausage, spinach, and cheese. Feel free to swap out whatever meat you enjoy most and add potatoes or whatever you like!
