Today makes two weeks of cleaning up my diet and this evening I decided to make Stuffed Bell Peppers. It's a little different than the kind that I grew up on but tastes just as amazing. This recipe is versatile and you could even toss in extra lean ground chicken as well.
Since it usually takes roughly 40 min. for brown rice to cook, I started prepping everything else. I started the water in order to blanch my green bell peppers. This step is optional but for me personally I like my stuffed peppers a little softer and to not have much of a crunch.
While waiting for the water for the peppers to come to a boil, I started mixing the rest of the ingredients. That way once the rice was done all that was left was to mix it and stuff it into the peppers.
It all goes together quick and easy and tastes absolutely fantastic. You could always add black beans in place of red beans and a few avocado slices would also compliment this dish perfectly. Once the peppers have finished cooking, you can add mexican cheese and put back in the oven for around 10 minutes, but if you opt to go without the cheese I would use the avocado just to add a little something extra.
