There is so much you can do in a slow cooker. From desserts, to breakfast, you can basically make anything in a slow cooker. Throw everything together and come home to a warm meal.

I wanted to make one of my favorite recipes in the slow cooker. I adapted my recipe for Healthy Mexican Quinoa and Turkey Stuffed Peppers and made it slow cooker friendly. This time I used brown rice in place of quinoa and added enchilada sauce for extra flavor and a little kick.

Easy Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

Healthy, satisfying and loaded with flavor. These stuffed peppers are cooked until perfectly tender. A filling, hearty and flavorful meal.

The stuffed peppers are loaded with lean ground meat (use either beef or turkey), black beans, corn, enchilada sauce and cheese. Cumin and chili powder give the filling a little kick.

Feel free to substitute quinoa or white rice for the brown rice. You can even make it vegetarian and omit the meat.

This is also great if you have leftover rice you need to use up. Throw in some leftover Mexican rice, white or brown rice. You really can’t go wrong with this recipe so toss in what you have on hand.

Top with sour cream, fresh cilantro and extra salsa for garnish. I like to serve mine with a sprinkle of cheese, enchilada sauce, sour cream and of course hot sauce on top!
