Happy October Friends, we made it!
As an Arizonian, making it through the hottest months of the year deserves respect. Now, finally, all the things that make Arizona amazing can be enjoyed. Hiking, outdoor running, and all the fun spooky activities that make October one of the best months. It is also Baylen’s birthday month, so this week will be spent coming up with some fun cake flavors to test out for the wedding while also, getting him a birthday cake. Why not kill two birds with one stone? Anywho, we will be celebrating that beautiful person on Friday, because he turns the big 31.
Can we talk about how freaking easy these Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers are?!
Okay, okay I’m all for the fancy meals. I mean c’mon, have you seen me on a Saturday night? If there isn’t a beurre blanc included, I don’t want it. But as busy as life has been, and man… has it been busy. I beginning to have a deep appreciation for easy meals. But, just because it’s easy doesn’t mean it has to suck, am I right?
That is where inspiration hit for these philly cheeseteak stuffed peppers. They are so easy, so healthy, and so flavorful! Baylen pretty much ate a whole pan of them because he could not contain himself. And there was no judgement on my end.
This healthy makeover for a Philly Cheesesteak is the weeknight hero you need.
My particular recipe for Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers are technically Keto, you’re welcome all you crazed keto-ers, but it can be made very easily without cheese to be Paleo and Whole30! They also keep really well as leftovers, so meal prep it up with these bad boys and give your co-workers meal envy when you whip these out for lunch in this beautiful tupperware you can buy below:
