A piece of advice, never read the label when you are eating chorizo. I mean I knew it was made of things I didn’t want to think about and definitely knew it wasn’t healthy, but it’s a whole different story when you have to come face to face with it. It can be a little scary. Now don’t get me wrong, I will definitely be eating chorizo again. I am not about to give it up forever, it just tastes too good. But after reading the ingredients for the first time, I found myself meandering over to the vegetarian section and picking up some soy chorizo. Much more palatable ingredient list. This recipe is incredibly simple to make and delicious. It is a riff on a traditional stuffed pepper with a Mexican twist. Stuffing it in a poblano adds a nice layer of heat and using cauliflower instead of rice cuts down on the calories. Delicious and low enough in points you could even have two.
Now my other favorite thing about this recipe is that it freezes really well. I was lucky enough to get to work with Glad Freezerware and challenged to come up with a fun, freezer friendly meal. I wanted to think outside the box and stay away from typical soups and stews to find something that would be delicious reheated for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Yes. I said breakfast. I had one this morning with a runny fried egg, delicious and only 6 points. Using the small Glad Freeezerware containers, I doubled the recipe and added one stuffed pepper to each container. They are airtight which means no worry about freezer burn. Then simply pull one out, take off the lid, and warm it up in the microwave. Freezer to microwave without cracking for a perfect on the go meal anytime.
