Tips for making the best keto Buffalo chicken stuffed peppers:

  • You might be tempted to skip precooking the bell peppers but it really does help to soften them up so they’re not crunchy when you serve this dish.
  • Rotisserie chicken would be great in this recipe as another way to speed up the prep!
  • If you or your family aren’t fans of a little heat, cut the Frank’s Hot Sauce down to 1/2 cup instead of a cup.
  • You can store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days, and this also freezes well, too.
  • A serving is the stuffed half of a bell pepper. Depending on your appetite, you might eat two servings. I found myself eating two halves for dinner and one half for lunch.
