Whether you’re a football fanatic or just there for the food these Spicy Pibil Chicken Stuffed Peppers are the perfect tailgaiting or homegating appetizer to get you hyped for every football game day gathering this season and fuel your excitement for your favorite team!

At home we love tailgating or rather homegating and for us watching the game together is synonymous with spicy foods. For us it’s much more than the enjoyment of watching our team play: homegating provides the perfect opportunity for us to bring together food, family, friends, and your football!

One of my favorite Mexican traditional recipes are tacos de chochinita pibil, these street tacos made with shredded pork and achiote paste have a really special and unique taste. But these are a little messy to eat while watching the game so I decided to create pibil stuffed peppers. Instead of pork I used shredded chicken breasts which makes these Mexican inspired appetizers much healthier than the original chochinita pibil tacos.

The lime and orange give the shredded chicken a very special sweet flavor while the chipotle adds a spicy kick that really makes all the flavors explode.
