A Stuffed Peppers Recipe that is colorful and flavorful, you might have to double it! A family favorite that never disappoints.
These stuffed peppers are an oldie, but a goodie. A meal that usually takes me on a walk down memory lane. So, as you can imagine, I’ve been enjoying this recipe since I was a kid — and it’s still my go-to recipe for stuffed peppers.
I love having these recipes in my recipe box, the ones my mom has passed down to me. They’re nothing fancy, but they pack a punch of homemade goodness.
For some reason I almost always make these using only green peppers. I think that’s from habit — and usually my mom has only used green peppers. For photographing, I decided to add some extra pops of color with the red and orange.
Anywho, it’s a colorful dish that incorporates protein, starch and vegetables. Woo hoo! Serve with a salad and/or a vegetable. I love pairing my stuffed peppers with corn — mmmm, I love corn! I should try pairing it with my Pressure Cooker Creamed Corn, huh?
And with that being said, I hope you’ll give them a try. Enjoy!
