Keto Stuffed Poblano Peppers

I have been experimenting with keto recipes and making videos of them. They are pretty basic, but I hope it helps others like me. If you are starting keto or low carb, these stuffed peppers with a twist may be your thing.

These peppers can be eaten just like that. I add guacamole and hot sauce to mine. You can do a green salad, cauli-rice, or any other side dish you would like. I do feel turning the stuffed pepper into a taco bowl is one of my favorite ways to eat them.

I am posting a lot of what I cook in Instagram. Please make sure you follow me to find out what I am cooking today. The link is above.

Keto Low Carb Stuffed Poblano Peppers

I love stuffed peppers and poblanos are great pepper to get full of good stuff, particularly if it is low carb and keto. I use my ground beef with sofrito to give it a Puerto Rican spin to it.
