Discover the perfect accompaniment for your next meal with these delicious Chorizo Stuffed Yellow Peppers. Stuffed bell peppers is one of those classic comfort side dishes that my family practically lived on when I was a kid. Combining the entree with the side dish using 1 baking pan made cleanup easier. And since that was my job, doing dishes, I loved when I seen these going in the oven.

A classic American dish that one can’t easily find in restaurants. When my garden is in full swing, we have these weekly to help use up the green, red and yellow peppers I grow. But there is something special about yellow peppers. Green bell peppers are the most common color, but the yellow variety contains much more of certain vitamins. The yellow peppers also contain fiber, protein, iron along with vitamin B & C, niacin, folate, thiamin, riboflavin and vitamin B6, three vitamins that help turn your food into energy. Yellow bell peppers taste sweet and they pair well with a variety of other ingredients. They are available at most large supermarkets year-round, which makes it easy for you to add them to your diet.
