Stuffed peppers are one of the best quick and easy dinner choices. Whether it’s stuffing them with cheese or with a mixture of meat, rice, and veggies, it’s so simple to prepare this filling and nutritious dish.
Plenty of peppers can be hollowed out and used for stuffing, and the ingredients that can be put into these peppers can range greatly. Here are some pepper ideas for the next time you decide to make this dish!
Bell peppers, whether they’re green, yellow, orange, or red, are a great choice for stuffing due to their large size and fairly neutral flavor. You can stuff them with whatever mix of rice, cheese, meat, and/or vegetables that you like. The possibilities are endless!
This Mexican pepper is a great choice if you want to add a little bit of heat to your stuffed pepper experience. Adding Mexican sauces or cheeses in the stuffing that you choose for them is another great way to step up the flavor quotient.
Are you looking for an Italian-themed stuffed pepper? Small cherry peppers might not hold quite as much as the first two options, but they work great due to their sharp and intense flavor. Stuffing them with fresh mozzarella, which balances out the heat of the pepper is especially great.
