Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

For the past month or so, I have been working on not only eating healthier but exercising daily in order to loose weight and to live a healthier lifestyle. I’m not following any specific diet, but I am cutting back on sweets, and working on portion control and so far, it’s been going good. I still want to be able to enjoy some of our favorite foods, so I have been looking at switching up ingredients to make them healthier. One thing that I have been craving lately is a cheesesteak sub, so instead of having it served on a warm bulky roll with all of those added carbs, I decided to make cheesesteak stuffed green peppers. My mother used to make stuffed peppers with a hamburger mixture when I was younger, I absolutely hated them and gagged the whole time, but now that I’m  older, cooked green are starting to grow on me and aren’t so bad after all. These Philly Cheesesteak stuffed peppers were easy to make, and a great alternative for my steak and cheese sub craving.

If you have any leftovers, you can always slice up, reheat and serve on a roll like my husband did for lunch the next day.

    My husband would be all over these Philly Cheese steak Stuffed Peppers, but i would use red, green, orange, and yellow peppers. Nice to see a assortment of colors.

    Those look delicious and so flavorful!

    What a great twist on these stuffed peppers. My mom made them too with a hamburger/rice mixture, I didn’t mind them but this looks really good.

  4. Those look amazingly delicious!

  5. Dandi D says:

    I’m just now getting peppers from the garden, so I will have to try these!

  6. I love stuffed green peppers but this recipe supercedes the stuffed peppers. I will have to try this one out on my family.

  7. Stuffed bell peppers and Philly cheesesteak are two of our favorite meals. I can’t imagine how good they are together.

  8. Terry Stevens says:

    These look so delicious. This will be on my list to make in the next few weeks.

    I used to think I hated stuffed peppers (as a kid), too. But now I love them & I love cheesesteaks, too. So, I need to try these!
