My family loves grilled stuffed peppers. During the summer we like to do them on the barbecue!! This foil packet meal is a great one for a weeknight meal or if you have company over. (originally published 6/16)

They are easy and can be made vegetarian if you prefer too. There’s just enough spice to them and are quite a healthy barbecue meal packed with lots of flavor

Don’t these just look heavenly??!! One of our favorite foil packet meals for camping.

Well there is a lot of versatility to this recipe depending on what you like inside your stuffed peppers but the base is rice.

  • I have added ground beef into the mixture from time to time but it is your choice. If you’d like my baked stuffed peppers recipe, it’s here too.

This one is a bit different because it is cooked on the grill in a foil packet and is meatless….but nontheless incredible!! Here’s how you make it.

First you will need as many poblano peppers as you think you will need (2 per person I would average). A rice cooker is helpful  just to speed up the process, if you don’t have one I use mine all the time and it’s still going after 10 years.

Gather all of your ingredients in the recipe below and get to dicing at home.

You’re going to want to dice your veggies and spices fairly fine and about the same size, in regards to the carrot, tomatoes, pea pods, and onion so that they cook evenly inside your grilled stuffed peppers.

Add everything including your brown rice (you could use white) into a bowl and mix well so everything is coated in goodness and then create your foil packets.

  • poblano peppers
  • carrot
  • onion
  • pea pods
  • cherry tomatoes
  • rice
  • garlic
  • olive oil
  • cayenne powder
  • salt and pepper

Of course you’ll need some tinfoil to wrap them all up so they can cook and not burn.

Generously stuff your peppers. If you are making more than 2 peppers then just double or triple the recipe.

If you want to add meat, brown about 1/2 lb. and add that to your mixture too. The steam inside the foil packets will steam everything really well so even the peppers will get nice and soft.

If you love our grilled stuffed peppers but want to make stuffed green peppers in the oven here is a recipe for that. Grilled pork chops and our chile relleno casserole are killer too.
