 It's that time of year again when the weekends turn into a beautiful whirlwind of football games, pumpkin patches, and Halloween parties. As the social calendars fill up, we know you'll want some fun, easy, and festive appetizers, party favors, and game day treats to share!

Blogger and nutritionist extraordinaire Alexandra Catalano's Stuffed Red Pepper Taco Bowls are one great idea to try this fall! Fill sweet bell peppers with shredded chicken breast, black beans, creamy Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil, fresh cilantro, and all your favorite spices. Bake the peppers in an oven or crockpot for a heavenly dish brimming with savory aroma and rich autumn flavors.
