Taco Stuffed Peppers

Air Fryer Taco Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients

2 red bell peppers

1 lb ground sirloin

1 envelope taco seasoning

3/4 C. salsa

1 C. black beans drained

1 C. corn drained

1/2 C. cream cheese

1/2,C. shredded Mexican cheese blend

Directions

1. Cut the red bell peppers in half, top to bottom. Carefully trim out the seeds and ribs from the inside. Place the four pepper halves, cut side down, in the basket of your air fryer. Cook at 375 degrees F for ten minutes.

2. While the peppers are cooking, heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground sirloin and cook until no longer pink, breaking it up with a heat-safe spatula as it cooks. Stir in the salsa and taco seasoning and allow to simmer for a few minutes.

3. Stir in the corn, black beans and cream cheese. Remove from heat and stir until the cream cheese is completely combined. Remove the peppers and fill each of them generously. Return them to the air fryer basket, filling side up. You’ll have extra filling. Make another round of peppers. Or save the filling and mix it into Kraft macaroni and cheese with some extra salsa for another meal.

4. Cook at 400 degrees F for 5 minutes. Open the air fryer, top each pepper with some shredded cheese and heat again at 400 degrees for 1-2 minutes, just until the cheese is melted. Serve the peppers topped with sour cream and taco sauce

Instant Pot buttered cabbage

Instant Pot buttered cabbage

Ingredients


1 head green cabbage

1 C. vegetable stock

2 Tbsp. butter

1 tsp. salt


¼ tsp. ground black pepper

Directions

1. Wash the cabbage, and remove the core. Then cut into cubes and add to the Instant Pot. Using a wooden spoon or your hands, quickly break down the cabbage cubes to separate the leaves into individual pieces.

2. Add the butter, and season with salt and ground black pepper. Add a cup of vegetable stock, or use water. I strongly recommend that you use vegetable stock instead of water as it adds a great flavor to the cabbage.

3. Secure the lid and set the vent to SEALING. Select the PRESSURE COOK/MANUAL setting and set the cooking time for 4 minutes at high pressure.

4. The Instant Pot will take around 10 minutes to come to pressure and start cooking. When the cooking program ends, quickly release the steam and carefully remove the lid. Stir the cabbage to make sure that the butter and seasonings are evenly distributed, and serve. I recommend serving this cabbage with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

Rinse the cauliflower cut the florets off, placing them in a large bowl.

Air Fryer Buffalo Wings

INGREDIENTS

2 lbs chicken wings, thawed

1 Tbsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

BUFFALO SAUCE INGREDIENTS

1/2 C. butter, (1 stick)

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

2/3 C. Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Sauce

Directions

1. Start by patting the wings dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. In a small bowl, mix the baking powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Then sprinkle the baking powder mixture over the chicken. Be sure to toss the chicken in the seasonings so that everything is evenly coated.

2. Add the chicken to the air fryer, and air fry for thirty-five minutes at 400 degrees flipping the chicken over halfway through cooking. (Note: Adjust the temperature to 390 degrees if using the Ninja Foodi.)

3. While the chicken is cooking, make the sauce. To make the sauce, add the Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Sauce, butter. and garlic powder to a small pot over medium heat. Cook the sauce until the butter is completely melted, and the sauce begins to simmer. Reduce the heat to low, so that the sauce stays warm while the wings finish cooking.

4. Once the wings are finished cooking, add them to a medium bowl. Pour the buffalo sauce over the wings and toss them to ensure that they are evenly coated in the sauce.

5. Serve immediately with celery, and your favorite dipping sauce.
