I was looking through my food photo’s yesterday and holy cow…

I realized I’d never posted these delicious little Chili Stuffed Peppers from last summer.

They’re the perfect way to use up some of that garden squash that’s just beginning to grow out-of-your-ears 🙂

PLUS!  This is actually two recipes in one:

First, you make this mouth-watering Slow Cooker Veggie Chili
