Tamale Style Marijuana Stuffed Peppers Recipe 

By  Cheri Sicard

 January 8, 2017

This recipe for Marijuana Stuffed Peppers was something I came up with one day when I was being lazy.  The stash of ingredients in the fridge and pantry was light and I did not want to have to go to the store in order to cook dinner.  So I improvised something with what I had on hand and I was surprised at how good it was!

While these tasty cannabis infused stuffed peppers can satisfy a tamale craving, they don’t have anywhere near as much fat as traditional tamales, which is a nice health bonus.  

The bell pepper shell adds fiber along with flavor too.

I use decarboxylated kief to infuse this recipe.  Learn more about Cooking with Kief and Hash at this link, along with just how easy it is to make Dry Ice Kief.

A note about the Dosage for the Marijuana Stuffed Peppers recipe!

This recipe will have about 65 mg THC per serving IF you used decarboxylated average kief (40% THC).  To adjust the dosage up or down for your personal needs, and to reflect the strength of the kief you are cooking with, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to do it, or use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).
