  • 4 medium bell peppers
  • 3 to 4 cups leftover chili
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 8- ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili seasoning
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Wash peppers and remove seeds and membranes; place in an oiled slow cooker insert.
  • Use a large spoon or small ladle to fill each pepper about 1/3 full of chili.
  • Sprinkle on a covering of cheese.
  • Repeat twice more.
  • Mix the water, tomato sauce, and chili seasoning. Pour over and around the peppers.
  • Cover and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours, or until the peppers are to the tenderness you personally prefer.
  • Freezer Meal option:
  • Prep them just as described above and place them on a cookie sheet.
  • Mix the tomato sauce and chili seasoning and pour into a sandwich sized freezer bag. Label it something like "To pour around peppers, add 1/4 cup water first". You can add the water now and freeze if you like. Either works. Some people just want to conserve as much freezer space as possible.
  • Freeze both the peppers and the sandwich bag overnight.
  • After both are frozen solid remove them from the freezer and place in a large, prelabeled freezer bag or canister.
  • Allow to defrost overnight before cooking. OR add a 1 to 2 hour more cook time if starting with frozen peppers.
