So here it is for public viewing……PROOF that Modern Mrs. Cleaver still plays with her food!
The proof is in the pepper
I LOVE stuffed peppers, but why not make them something unique and kid friendly for Halloween? This is super cinchy to do and they turn out amazing. I grab orange bell peppers because they look like mini pumpkins when they are on the plate, but you can carve any color ya like.
Stuff em’ with your favorite pepper stuffing, or use my Mexican Rice recipe with the link posted below.
~Mexican Rice Recipe~
The Mexican Rice is enough to stuff 6-8 large peppers, or have some for leftovers!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
So grab a pepper and slice around the top to create a circle and pop the lid off. Cut the seeds and membrane away to flatten the bottom of the lid.
Carefully remove seeds and white membrane from inside the pepper.
With a sharp paring knife, cut faces into your peppers. Make them happy, scary, or even include teeth. Get creative 🙂
Place the peppers into a baking dish and stuff with your choice of stuffing.
Place in the oven and bake for 45-60 minutes until the peppers are nice and soft. Allow them to cool for a few moments, then plate and serve. I like to put a dollop of sour cream on top of my Mexican Rice and sprinkle with cilantro.
Here they are….aren’t they awesome???
So go ahead and play with your food….I won’t tell!
