Ingredients

  • Mini bell peppers – Mini peppers are the perfect container for a tasty bite of food. They are vibrant in color, full of antioxidants, and low in calories. I usually cut up 3-4 for my snack, but you could always make extra if you wanted to meal prep.
  • Chopped chicken – The way you prepare your chicken doesn’t matter. I like to use freshly grilled chicken (because it is quick) but you could also use shredded chicken that you have slow cooked or pulled from a rotisserie. It all tastes juicy and delicious! Also, because you add the BBQ sauce, you don’t really need any additional seasonings. I add a sprinkle of salt and pepper, but that’s it! This chicken adds lean protein to the dish which I LOVE!!
  • G Hughes Sugar Free BBQ sauce – Most normal BBQ sauces are absolutely filled with sugar. They are more sugar than sauce! Because of that, I have been in love with G Hughes’ brand of sugar free BBQ sauce. It still gives me that smoky, tangy flavor but without all the added sweeteners.
  • Shredded cheese – You could experiment with what kinds of cheeses to use, but I suggest adding one that melts well. Some kinds of cheese that I think would go well with these BBQ chicken mini peppers include colby jack, pepper jack, cheddar, or provolone.
  • Guacamole – Both homemade or store-bought guac work great for this recipe. You just want to make sure to add that dollop of avocado to the top of your peppers. Not only does it add a creamy, rich flavor, but it adds healthy fats too!
