Stuffed Peppers, a simple and hearty meal. Easy cooking at home.
Stuffed Peppers Good for Cold Day
Hi. It's Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about some yummy Stuffed Peppers. Stuffed peppers were a favorite of mine when I was a child. I don't have my mother's recipe, but this recipe is a little similar to hers and it's easy to make.
I combined several recipes to make this version. Mom's was more tomato-based and tasted a little like Mexican food (Spanish Rice). These peppers are a little milder. I bake my peppers, but my neighbor says she cooks hers on top of the stove in tomato sauce and instead of putting the rice with the meat mixture, she serves the peppers over rice.
Stuffed Peppers freeze well. Under bake them a little bit if you are going to freeze them. Then just thaw, warm and serve for a quick supper.
