First, I have to apologize for the week-long absence… I had to give my “borrowed” camera back. After some setbacks (which I’ve detailed on Facebook), I am back in full force… prepare yourselves for a hailstorm of amateur cooking and mediocre pictures this week!
Kicking it off, I’ve taken some (inexpensive) peppers and stuffed them with an (inexpensive) filling. I am not a huge fan of peppers by their lonesome, but will gladly clear my plate when stuffed with something as simple as rice and beef.
The question: “What should I stuff inside these peppers?” I opted for a variation on Spanish rice.
So, I took all of the popular Spanish rice recipes I could find and merged them into one. I also wanted to add some sort of protein to the mix, so I bought some ground turkey. I then threw everything on the counter and went to play golf… so I got the pleasure of buying some ground beef later to replace the turkey that went bad.
Once I dug in, I realized it was severely lacking in the hot & spicy department. Frank was immediately added and everything was complete.
I thought these came out pretty well for my first attempt, but I wouldn’t mind trying different variations in the future. Have you eaten/made stuffed peppers? If so, what was in them?
