When it comes to gluten-free stuffed peppers, this Cheesy Chicken Stuffed Peppers recipe is my favourite! The sweet red bell peppers are filled with chunks of tender chicken, quinoa, cheddar cheese, and fresh tomatoes.

For the flavour, delicious spices such as cumin, chilli powder, garlic and oregano. Because I love spicy food, I also added cayenne pepper. However, you can skip the cayenne pepper if you are not a fan of spicy food.

You may think that making stuffed peppers is complicated? I can promise you this gluten-free cheesy chicken stuffed pepper recipe is so simple to make even a novice cook can whip it up in minutes. The filling has a robust Mexican flavour making these stuffed peppers extraordinary.



Why is this a healthier version of stuffed peppers?

Most stuffed peppers have rice in the filling. I wanted to keep this gluten-free recipe on the healthier side, so I replaced the rice with nutrient-rich quinoa. I know that some of you may not like quinoa, but trust me on this! If quinoa is prepared correctly and seasoned, you will love it.

In these stuffed peppers, the quinoa is mixed with plenty of cheddar cheese and chunks of tender chicken. To keep the filling moist, I added pieces of fresh tomatoes and sour cream.

Stuffed peppers are considered comfort food, and this healthier version of peppers filled with deliciousness makes for a perfect midweek meal that will warm your soul.
