When it's time to help the kids get ready for a night of trick-or-treating and Halloween parties, you'll already have dinner ready to fill them up right before they fill up on too many treats!

Spooky Pepper Jack-O-Lanterns 

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground pork (or a combination of pork and beef)
  • 4 large green peppers
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 carrots
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon dry oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dry or fresh tarragon

  • Optional: jalapeños (diced)


Instructions

  • Cut the tops of the peppers and clean the seeds out.
  • Cut out jack-o-lantern faces in the sides of the peppers.
  • Arrange peppers in a slow cooker standing up and make sure they fit securely.
  • Mince onion, carrots, garlic and cauliflower in the food processor. You can also just chop them into small pieces with a knife if you don’t have a food processor.
  • In a big bowl, combine ground pork, shredded vegetables, seasonings, diced tomatoes, and jalapeños (optional).
  • Add salt and pepper to taste. Stuff the peppers with the mixture and arrange the leftover meat between the peppers. Drizzle on top a generous amount of Primal Kitchen® Ranch Dressing.
