Colorful bites full of flavor. These stuffed peppers make an ideal snack for the family or a get-together as a pretty finger food everyone can dip and eat!

Super Bowl Sunday is around the corner again. For some people, it’s about the big game. For me, it’s about all the food that I can eat.

Whether you’re looking for an exciting, out-of-the-ordinary Super Bowl Sunday hors d’oeuvre or a fun, filling snack for a get-together any time of year, try these delicious stuffed peppers. I love this recipe because it’s fun to make, serve and eat! It only requires 3 ingredients if you have some leftover meat. I used some leftover beef barbacoa for this recipe.

Mini Stuffed Peppers Make a Great Party Food

I like to make this stuffed pepper recipe when I’m having a party or a small gathering. These bites work great for guests because you can throw them together quickly, they impress a crowd with their colorful presentation and they offer a finger food people can dip with. You can serve these up with other snacks and hors d’oeuvres so your guests can get small bites of everything. It takes less than a half hour to make this recipe (when you make the meat stuffing in advance) so you can focus on finishing the rest of your tasks for the party.

A Healthy Snack for Get-Togethers

I know it’s easy to serve up a bunch of junk food when you’re having people over because it takes too much effort to make healthy food. Not with these sweet pepper bites, my friend. You get the nutrients of the sweet bell peppers, which give you a heaping of vitamin C and some vitamin A, protein and fiber with a healthy amount of some calories.

This stuffed pepper recipe has some of my beef barbacoa in each pepper, which gives you nutrients like iron and protein with the small portion size limiting the fat and calorie content. You round out the dish with some cheese and your choice of nutrient-dense guacamole and/or salsa.

I hope you and your guests enjoy the presentation and flavor of these fun stuffed peppers for Super Bowl Sunday or any gathering. Let me know what snacks or meals you end up serving them with.
