Can stuffed peppers be frozen?

I get this question all the time! The answer is YES, you can freeze stuffed peppers! Be sure everything is fully cooked and cooled before freezing, and be sure to wrap them well (in plastic wrap) and store in an airtight container.

You can also store them in the fridge instead, if you know you’ll be reheating and eating them within 3-5 days. Makes them a great meal to make for your favorite new mama, friend in need, or spouse for work the next day. High fives all around!
