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!


  • Absolutely stunning…I adore the chorizo and huevos stuffing! Yum! Good advice regarding breakfast Ben-gotta make it interesting!

  • Most people are in kind of a rush in the morning, but I will look forward to making these on the week-end. They look terrific, full of flavor, color and vitamins too.

  • That looks so good Ben! I am a breakfast girl so yes, I will always eat a good breakfast first (well, ok, maybe it is not good all the time, but I try!)

  • I love breakfast food meals and this looks wonderful. Thanks for the recipe.

  • Loving this! It would probably never make the midweek meal list, it'd be perfect for a weekend brunch!

  • Interesting spin on breakfast, they look delicious!

  • I love big breakfasts – they're my favorite part of every day! I never thought of doing stuffed peppers for breakfast, but they sound delicious. And I have bacon in the fridge…

  • This is great, I'm going to try it in the morning. Too bad it takes 40 minutes to cook though. I figure I can do my morning workout and then when I'm finished it'll be ready.

  • looks delicious, gonna try this tomorrow, but i will add basil instead of parsley 😛

  • I'm a breakfast girl Ben… these peppers sound perfect…. You made my mouth water. I have a good stuffed pepper recipe too… that I will be sharing in the near future! Have a beautiful weekend, and keep the delicious-ness coming!
