Chicken Stuffed Mini Peppers

I love leftovers! Some of my favorite meals come from leftovers. It doesn’t have to mean just reheating the same thing you ate last night...get creative! The leftovers here were ground chicken from taco night. I use my own spice blends, so this had been lightly seasoned and for this meal I added my arugula pesto (I store mine flat in the freezer, so that I can easily break small bits off for single meals). I then stuffed mini bell peppers with the ground meat, sliced up an avocado and put together a simple salad...DONE! Lean protein + healthy fat + lots of veggies = 🙌. The mini peppers are a new favorite as well. They are about ¼-½ the size of a regular bell pepper, have a mild taste and great crunch...keep an eye out for them! This will be a great summer meal too. It’s definitely going into my regular rotation.

What is your favorite way to use up leftovers?
