This winter a good friend was telling me how she made stuffed peppers, I'd had these as a kid but never had thought of making them for my boys. They love hamburger, love rice, should be a hit, and it was, they absolutely loved them. I used yellow, red and orange, peppers because Mr.Fun is not a fan of green peppers. I am not a fan of hamburger, so, I thought hmm this would be really good with chicken and Spanish rice, like a fajita. Well, thats what I made tonight for Cinco de Mayo and let me tell ya it was nummy!!!!
So, all I did was take 6 peppers cut tops off clean out put in a pot of boiling water for 5 min. I took the easy way out and made 2 packages (probably could of only done 1) of lipton Spanish rice, sauteed one onion and mixed it in to the Spanish rice when that was done. Grilled 3 chicken breasts (perfect meal if you have left over chicken in frig.) chopped it up and mixed it in rice mixture. Next time I might add some fajita seasoning mix. Lightly rubbed insides of peppers with olive oil, then added rice mixture. Put in a cake pan that had about 3-4 inches of water in it. Baked at 350 for a half hour. Served with sour cream, gaucamole dip and some refried beans. The entire family LOVED it!!!!! I will definitely be making this again. Also looks pretty :)
