It's the height of pepper season and that means our
markets are brimming with all sorts of shapes, sizes
and colors. They're not only pretty to look at, they
pair up with everything from our salads to our main
dishes, like one of my favorites, stuffed peppers.
To begin with, we mix together a can of tomato sauce,
some water, and a few seasonings. Then, in another
bowl, we make our filling by combining some ground
beef, a cup of uncooked instant rice, a chopped onion
and a cup of the sauce that we just made. Now, after
cutting the tops off about half a dozen peppers and
removing the seeds, we stuff them with the meat mixture.
As for the peppers, they can be any type, any color.
Want to get a bit adventurous? Use pablano or Italian
peppers for a nice change of pace. Okay, once the
peppers are stuffed, we pour a bit of the tomato sauce
into the pot, put our peppers on top of it and drizzle
it with the rest of the sauce. Then cover them and
cook on low for about an hour or so. That's it. Each
one is a meal in itself. And don't forget to spoon
all that flavor packed sauce over these to make them
irresistible. I hope you'll go online this afternoon
and get our budget-friendly recipe for Summer Stuffed
Peppers so you can treat your family to one of my
