Andouille-Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Andouille-Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Green peppers in Cajun dishes inspired this recipe. For a healthy choice instead of andouille, substitute chicken sausage, cubed chicken or other protein. —Sarah Larson, Carlsbad, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 package (8 ounces) jambalaya mix
  • 4 small green peppers
  • 3/4 pound fully cooked andouille sausage links, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 can (16 ounces) tomato juice
  • Louisiana-style hot sauce, optional


  • 1. Prepare jambalaya mix according to package directions. Meanwhile, cut peppers lengthwise in half; remove seeds.
  • 2. In a large skillet, cook and stir sausage over medium-high heat until browned. Add jalapeno; cook 1 minute longer.
  • 3. Stir sausage mixture into prepared jambalaya. Spoon into pepper halves. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; pour tomato juice over and around peppers.
  • 4. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until peppers are tender. Serve with hot sauce if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"Very flavorful, we like dishes with some kick in my house. I changed up the peppers a bit. I used a red pepper, a yellow pepper, an orange pepper, and a poblano pepper. Very colorful and very delicious."

"This was an instant favorite with my family. We used chicken instead of Andouille, and topped each pepper with a slice of cheddar cheese. Delicious!"

"I'm a novice to cooking and never made a stuffed pepper before. This recipe was so easy and tasted amazing too. Definitely for more grown up taste-buds as it has some zing."
