Buffalo Chicken & Lentil Stuffed Pepper #SundaySupper

Who likes it hot hot hot? Do you prefer a little bit of heat and a little bit of sweet? If your answering yes to these questions than this Sunday Supper theme is just for you! My husband loves anything hot so this Buffalo Chicken & Lentil Stuffed Pepper was made just for him. The hotter the better, and though I may have to take a Zantac with some of the dishes I make for my hot shot of a husband I love a good kick too! Adding Buffalo sauce to anything usually does the trick for us. Adding celery and carrots only came natural to me because when I think of buffalo anything I think of the carrots and celery on the side to dip. Of course I didn’t think of that until after I made this dish, a bit of blue cheese or ranch dressing should have been drizzled on the top and I bet it would have been even more delicious than it actually was! It easily stuffs four peppers but with the leftovers I made lettuce cups with the filling! It was SO good. Or you could probably stuff six peppers and pass on the leftover filling.

Of course we can’t let today go by without saying Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Momma’s out there. I for one love the conversation I had with my five year old this week, this is how it went:

Me: So it’s Mother’s Day this weekend what have you got planned for Momma?
Madison: Daddy already bought your gift and it’s little. It came in a package in the mail this week.
Me: Oh well don’t tell me what it is Momma loves surprises, what are you going to do for Momma?
Madison: When is Father’s Day?
Me: Oh Daddy’s Day is next month in June.
Madison: Well when is Kids day then?
Me: Oh honey Kids day is everyday.

Trust me when I say the conversation went on but I was talking to myself at that point. So a special thanks to today’s host Sarah of The Chef Next Door for putting together this “Hot” event. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the recipes that may “tickle” your fancy.

  1. My husband loves hot and spicy. Stuffed sweet bell peppers are the best with something spicy. Happy Mother’s Day! Madison sounds like a really smart kid.

  2. These sound really good! I love stuffed peppers but often want a change. Buffalo chicken is a favorite so these look great!

  3. This looks amazing! I love lentils and this is an awesome way to use them! This might turn Steve into a lentil fan! Thanks for the recipe!!!!
