  • 2 cups white rice cooked
  • 8 peppers halved lengthwise
  • 1 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 cup onion chopped
  • 4 jalapenos sliced from the jar, diced
  • 1/2 cup bell peppers diced (use the leftover tops after halving peppers)
  • 6 cups chicken shredded ( I cooked 3 large chicken breasts, but you can also use a purchased rotisserie chicken for convenience.)
  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 1 pkg ranch dressing
  • 1/2 cup Buffalo Sauce Franks Original
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded (may substitute cheddar if desired.)


  • Cook rice on stovetop according to package directions. If you have a rice steamer, you can use that. Set rice aside as you prepare the peppers and filling.
  • Remove tops of peppers and halve each pepper lengthwise. Clean out the seeds inside. Reserve tops to add to the filling.
  • Steam peppers until soft or place on a cookie sheet in a 350-degree oven until soft (about 15 min.)
  • While peppers are softening, dice the onion, pepper tops, and jalapenos. Saute lightly in butter to combine. Set aside.
  • Shred chicken. Combine with the diced onion/pepper mixture.
  • Add Buffalo Sauce, ranch dressing and cream cheese
  • Combine rice with the chicken and sauce mixture.
  • Fill peppers with chicken mixture. Arrange peppers on a large baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on each pepper.
  • Bake in 350-degree oven for approx. 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and serve with a side of blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing. Can add additional Buffalo Sauce to top of pepper if desired.
