Beef Enchilada Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Another new recipe that sounds spicy but is actually just filled with incredible flavor and super tasty! Now allow yourself some time to prepare this meal since you have to cook your ground beef and make the sauce, then stuff the peppers and bake for 50 minutes. Sort of a longer cook time but worth the wait - the peppers are so tender! Two of my sweet cousins have made this meal and raved about it, so of course I had to try it!

This past weekend I took the boys to Texas to celebrate my grandparent's 60th Anniversary. What an accomplishment, they have really paved the way for what a successful marriage based on love and support looks like. My mom is one of four kids, so all the kids were there and then their kids and great grandkids. It was a super special weekend and we even had a family photo shoot! We spent time at my Aunt and Uncle's ranch that came equipped with corn hole, tractors, 4 wheelers, hot tubs, and family. Such an awesome weekend and I am so glad my sons and I got to go. Congratulations to my Grammie and Poppy - we love you dearly! (Kyle's brother came to CO to hang out so he couldn't be in TX - but he had a great time climbing mountains and camping!)
