Paleo Stuffed Hot Peppers

When I lived in my apartment in Toronto I used to make mini paleo stuffed peppers with jalapeño peppers and the meat mixture below.  The paleo stuffed peppers were so hot it was hard to finish a plateful.  I would make extra and eat them for a quick breakfast.  This time around I saw some larger hot peppers at the grocery store that were hot but not to the same degree as jalapeño peppers.  I felt it made a fun dinner.  I didn’t even need a fork and a knife.  I chomped down on the paleo stuffed peppers like a slice of pizza.
