Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers — An easy and gluten-free dinner recipe that’s perfect for football season!
Is it just me, or did fall come in full swing overnight? One day I’m sweating in shorts, the next it’s Ice Age in the morning. I love you autumn, but sometimes you stink.
But it does have me finally craving all the fall foods. Pumpkin everything. Apple Crisp. Hot bevs. Buffalo chicken…
..Maybe that’s just a phase, but I am craving all the sweater weather comfort foods, and dishes that actually require more than lettuce and a bowl to prepare.
I bring it to living with a boy that I can say buffalo sauce and football are regular parts of my life and vocabulary.
I’ve been putting buffalo sauce on ‘errthang lately. Tuna. Pasta. Chicken. And if I need to tell you, SALADS.
I’m still not entirely sure why, but buffalo salads aren’t quite catching on as a game day food as much as I had hoped. Stuffed peppers doh? ALWAYS.
Girlfriend tested. Boyfriend approved.
…I really need to stop with the commercial references in this post. We’ll leave that to the Super Bowl. 🙂
