Stuffed Bell Peppers

June 28, 2013

Foodie Friday

Welcome to Kitsune’s Kitchen, where this food snob prepares awesome foods like pizza, sloppy Joes, chimichurri chicken and more! Today, I will be sharing a super simple recipe for those of you who want a filling meal without spending a lot of time

This can be easily made into a vegan supper.

Stuffed Bell Peppers

What you need:

  • Rice — I use brown rice, but you can use basmati, jasmine, white, or any of the other hundred types. You can also play around with other grains like quinoa or couscous
  • Beans — I personally like the Simple Truth “brand” from my local Kroger, but it can be any type of beans you like. Again, you can play with this as much as you like.
  • Meat — If desired, and really any type as well.
  • Salsa of any type — I use the Mexican salsa La Costena because it retains the flavor and has actual veggies in it.
  • Bell pepper(s) — I don’t particularly like the red bell peppers for these, but whichever you like.

Cook the rice until it is done or nearly done. Then, throw the rice, beans, salsa and meat into a skillet. If you are putting in meat, cook until the meat is done and take off the stove. If there is no meat, cook until mixture is hot throughout, about 5 minutes. Cut the bell pepper’s tops off, take out the insides and wash them out. Now you have a bowl for the mixture. Enjoy!

    I used to steam the peppers, fill, then bake them until I tried Czech stuffed peppers. Stuff the peppers so they can stand upright, simmer them gently in canned tomatoes and juice. Remove peppers when tender, keeping them warm; reduce tomato mixture as you like, season to taste, turn off heat, stir in sour cream — now you have a super sauce!

    Yummm! I also like to lightly steam the peppers, then stuff them, then give them a quick 10min in the oven on high, if desired with a little cheese on top.

      Everything’s better with cheese on top!
