In an effort to avoid our yearly surplus of green peppers, I decided to plant only one green pepper plant in our garden. It is our least favorite of the pepper varieties as we prefer the colored ones in our salads and fajitas. We have yet to pick a ripened colored pepper from one of the ten plants we have growing but have picked at least twelve from the one green pepper plant. Figures.
We hadn't had stuffed peppers in a while and as I was making it, I remembered exactly why it is one of my favorites! I love a meal that takes less than 30 minutes to prepare the night before and includes all of the essential ingredients that make for a well balanced dinner; vegetables, a lean meat and a serving of whole grains. And as an added bonus, the kids get a kick out of eating from a "pepper bowl!"
