Tequila & Chorizo Stuffed Bell Peppers

If you follow along regularly, then you know that this blog is actually just a side-job. My actual job is working as a food stylist and recipe developer for retail brands. Those perfectly curated Instagram accounts and unique recipes integrating products on their websites? Yup, those are mine and the other awesome professional food stylists that are living the dream. It’s fun (and quite delicious) work. So every once in a while, I like to share with you some of my favorite recipes I have created for the big guys. And today I have a yummy, summertime treat that is sure to fill those bellies and warm the heart: Tequila & Chorizo Stuffed Bell Peppers.

I created this little gem for Crock-Pot’s website, which you can view here. It takes a bit of prep, but after that is done it’s just smooth sailing. Here we go…

    Wish I had chorizo.. I don’t think I’ve ever had it before
