I love the colors of bell peppers. They come in green, yellow, orange, and red. So festive! But usually colorful peppers are quite pricey. Imagine my surprise when I recently found them on sale! Of course I scooped up a bunch, I couldn’t resist, they were so pretty. But what does one do with a bunch of peppers? Stuffed peppers!
Stuffed peppers are so simple, it’s sort of like making meatloaf. Stuffing the meat into the peppers gives it extra flavor. You can also add rice to the stuffing mix and you’ve got a complete meal.
Now that summer’s around the corner you’ll probably find lots of colorful peppers. Take advantage of it and make some colorful stuffed peppers!
