Peanut Stuffed Cubanelle Peppers

While stuffed Jalapenos are made for adults and you want to make a similar stuffed pepper for your kids who can't tolerate spicy food. Try this cubanelle pepper which is not at all spicy, but kind of sweet and succulent. If you want a slightly spicier version then go for poblano or anaheim. I personally prefer the stuffed jalapeno for this recipe, but my elder one loves this one. So I make this quite often. So depending on the spice level you can tolerate pick the peppers which will suit your taste and this stuffing will work for any type of peppers. This snack is very low in carb but high in protein , gluten free and sure tastes good.

Preparation Time - 10 Minutes

Cooking Time - 10 Minutes

Serves - 2


Cubanelle Peppers - 2 (Washed, stem chopped and split)

Onion - 1 small to medium

De skinned peanuts - 3/4 Cup

Coconut - 1 Tbsp

Red Chili powder - 1 Tsp or per your taste

Salt - 1/2 Tsp

Amchoor powder - 1/2 Tsp

Garam masala powder - 1/2 Tsp

Coconut Oil - 1 Tbsp


1) Take the peanuts and make a coarse powder in your food processor and to this add

the salt, garam masala powder, amchoor powder, red chili powder, grated coconut and chopped onions and mix and set this aside.

2) Meanwhile heat a flat bottomed pan big enough to accommodate 4 peppers or you can do one by one or two and two depending on the size. Add the oil and once it warm go to the next step.

3) Take the filling and fill the peppers and place them in the pan one by one sideways with their filling side facing upwards.

4)  Cover and cook for 5 minutes and then uncover and cook for 5 more minutes till the peppers are slightly tender.

5) Remove from the pan and let this cool for few minutes and serve immediately.

Notes  - I still had some stuffing left out and used it for stuffed eggplant curry. For more details on what kind of pepper to choose based on the spice level check this website out.
