Stuffed Poblano Peppers

This is an awesome recipe that I adapted from Julie at Paleomg.  Her recipes helped me learn how to eat "paleo" and not hate myself or empty my wallet.  For my peppers I substituted out some beef for lamb and added squash.  Check out her website for seriously awesome recipes!

  • 1/4 lb ground lamb
  • 1/2 yellow onion minced

  5. Stir until meat starts to brown
