Paleo Latin Spiced Stuffed Peppers

Those who know me well know that I don't need an excuse to make every day a Fiesta!  My poor husband has endured the never ending abyss of my Latin cravings.  But he seemed to enjoy this version of Stuffed Peppers (may have been because he just killed a WOD and was famished).   

Ingredients:
Peppers 8-10 medium any color
Ground Meat 5 lbs (Beef/Pork/Turkey)
Onion 1 large chopped
Tomatoes 2 cups chopped
Spinach 2 cups julienne chopped
Tomato Paste 1/2 cup
Olives 1/4 cup green pimento sliced
Garlic Cloves 4-5 minced 
Salsa 1/2 cup fresh all natural
Olive Oil 2 tablespoons
Smoked Paprika 2 tablespoons  
Cayenne Pepper 1 teaspoon
Sea Salt/Pepper to taste

Cut tops of Peppers and core out middle.  Place in baking dish standing upright then place aside.  In large skillet heat Olive Oil on medium heat.  Sauté Onion and Garlic until translucent.  Add all remaining ingredients and cook until meat is thoroughly cooked.  Fill each Pepper vessel to the top.  Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes until tender.  Can top with cheese and more salsa if desired.
