Just over two years ago I almost, almost threw out my crock pot. Don’t take that literally – I really was going to just take to the thrift store so someone else could give it a second life, but I almost did.
Once I bought my Instant Pot I thought my life was complete and that I would never, ever use my crock pot again. In fact, we have clearly made well over 100 recipes in our Instant Pot and I don’t think I’ll ever get that crazy with my crock pot.
I’ll be honest though… deep down, I still love my crock pot and it has a special place in my pantry; I’ll freely admit though that this is the first time I have pulled it out in two years.
I know, that’s pitiful, right?
The Instant Pot truly is a life changing appliance, and one that gets used to the max around my house. I’ll admit though that on this particular day I was in a pinch – we had a busy day planned and I wanted dinner to be done when we got home later in the afternoon.
And… I had beans scheduled to cook in my Instant Pot so I couldn’t use that for something else.
It felt a little odd pulling out this crock pot from the dark depths of the pantry, but it turned out for the best. Crock Pot stuffed peppers are always a nice welcome meal from everyone in the family. Plus, it gives me a way to use my beautiful bell peppers that are taking over my garden.
Everyone loves peppers, and so it’s an easy dinner that seems almost effortless – indeed it is, because all I have to do is mix, stuff and place in my crock pot and throw the lid on before pushing a few buttons. Even my kids can do that. After being out of the house all day with the kids, it was kind of refreshing to come home and lift a lid to pull out dinner.
It almost seemed so easy it was wrong – know that feeling?
These stuffed peppers would be wonderful with a loaf of french bread and a side salad, or you could even whip up some rice to serve as a side too. I hope you enjoy these peppers as much as we do!
