Whoever invented the crock pot stuffed bell peppers recipe is a true genius.. They are so--- “Yeah! I agree! Bell Peppers are the best!” Really? So, can you tell us about it? *silence* Come on! You can do better than that! “What? Bell peppers are peppers! That’s it! What more should I say?!” Uhm, that you know nothing about bell peppers? “I know everything about bell peppers!” *punches me in the face* Whoa! Calm down, amigo!

Bell peppers, also known as sweet pepper and capsicum, are large bell-shaped sweet pepper in green, red, yellow, orange or black varieties. They belong to the species Capsicum annuum. These peppers are native Mexico, Central and the northern part of South America. You can also eat the ribs and seeds of a bell pepper; however, you might not prefer its bitter taste. In 1493, Bell pepper seeds are brought to Spain and “from there spread to other European, African and Asian countries.” Today, the largest producer of peppers is the ‘sleeping giant’, China.

Bell peppers have health benefits? Check! Again, for those who are trying to burn those calories, including bell peppers in your recipe is a major benefit. Bell peppers are very low in calories. One full cup of it only contains 45 calories, and it is very high in vitamins A and C! The red bell peppers contain the highest amount of vitamin C which enhances our immune system. Also, according to Shubhra Krishan, red bell peppers “contain several phytochemicals and carotenoids, particularly beta-carotene, which lavish you with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.” Capsaicin in bell peppers is proven to be good for the health. There are several studies conducted about it, and they show that capsaicin in bell peppers “reduces ‘bad’ cholesterol, controls diabetes, brings relief from pain and eases inflammation.”

So, get your kitchen ready and let’s have a crock pot stuffed bell peppers for snacks later! “I have a question.” Shoot. “Why is it called ‘bell peppers’? Is it because it looks like a bell?” *silence* *more silence*another 5 hours of silence* Seriously?
