These breakfast stuffed peppers are pretty much at capacity when it comes to flavor. The filling is a slightly spicy combination of Mexican chorizo, onion, mushroom, and melty cheese, topped off with an egg and your favorite accouterments (cilantro and thinly sliced radishes are highly recommended). Switching between a big batch for your brunch crowd and breakfast for two couldn't be easier.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375F. Slice peppers in half lengthwise, then use a small knife to carefully remove the seeds and membranes. Arrange peppers cut side up in a large baking dish.

Step 2

Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and mushrooms. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions have softened and mushrooms have cooked down.

Step 3

Add chorizo and cook, breaking the meat apart until it’s fully cooked through, about 8 minutes.

Step 4

Transfer the cooked chorizo and vegetable mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add shredded cheese and stir together to combine.

Step 5

Spoon the mixture inside the bell peppers, filling each about 3/4 full. Make sure to leave a little room so the egg will fit in nice and securely.

Step 6

Carefully crack an egg into the top of each bell pepper. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 7

Bake uncovered for 25-28 minutes for a runny yolk, or longer for a fully cooked yolk.

Step 8

Top with chopped cilantro, cotija cheese, and sliced radishes. Serve immediately.

Farm Team Tips:

Look for the largest peppers you can find so you can fill them up with all the tasty chorizo mixture!

Prefer your eggs scrambled? You can whisk the eggs together and pour them into the peppers instead of cracking them on top. However, you’ll only need 6 eggs instead of 8.

Can’t find Mexican chorizo? You can make your own using this homemade chorizo recipe or substitute it using a your favorite breakfast sausage.

Don’t like mushrooms? Swap them out for a handful of chopped spinach, kale or even black beans!
