Stuffed Breakfast Peppers

Pepper breakfast

I have mentioned before that for me breakfast is the most important meal of the day because: 1) my parents always made me eat breakfast before school, even if that meant waking up at 5:00 am when my first class was at 7:00 am, and 2) the health benefits of starting your day with a delicious meal are many. However, there doesn’t seem to be as many ideas for breakfast as there are for lunches and dinners out there. That’s why I am always trying to come up with new things to make my breakfasts more exciting. Because, let’s face it, if your breakfast is not exciting, it is easier to skip it or opt for a less healthier option at the drive-thru or doughnut shop. Here I present to you these healthy and delicious bell peppers stuffed with Huevos con Chorizo.

¡Buen provecho!


  • I had some tri-coloured peppers stuffed with five-spiced rice and some Gouda a long while ago…just delicious.
    Next time I am going to add some chorizo into the rice!

  • In so many cultures, breakfasts are super savory things and often include chicken and rice and other dishes that we would think of more as lunch…especially Indian cultures. I think that is so cool. Much better than our sugary American breakfasts.

    These stuffed peppers are gorgeous! I would definitely get out of bed for them.

  • I like this stuffed breakfast pepper. Chorizo and eggs go well together.

  • Delicious and nutritious — and oh so pretty to look at.

  • What a great idea to morph stuffed peppers into a morning meal! These would also be great as breakfast-for-dinner.

  • I just love this concept Ben. If I had one of these my day would have started perfectly.

  • Yum! This sounds amazing, and it's so beautiful, too!

  • Stuffed pepper for breakfast! You are luxurious 😀

  • If that was on a menu here somewhere Matt would order it every time

  • Yummy! These looks great Ben! I agree – I am always on the quest for good and wholesome breakfasts! This is a great idea!
