Mexican Stuffed Peppers

No Comments | Written on April 2, 2014 at 5:00 am , by

This recipe is a vegetarian version of stuffed peppers with a Mexican twist!

The filling is made of brown rice, vegetables and beans with a kick from chipotle peppers.  Should there be any leftover filling after you stuff the peppers,, it makes a great stuffing for enchiladas, burritos, or quesadillas.

My favorite part of the recipe is the crunchy pepita topping.  It’s made with chopped pumpkin seeds, cheese and (here’s the twist) Grape Nuts cereal!

One way to capture the flavors of summer is through pickling.  If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of home canning, refrigerator pickles are a great option.  They keep for up to 3 months in your refrigerator, but my guess is they will disappear much faster than that!

Last week we took a bit of a detour with the weekly recipe contest and threw our readers a curveball – quinoa.  This “ancient grain” has suddenly become a trendy ingredient.   We received a wide variety of recipe submissions with creative ways to use quinoa, but one unique preparation stood out to our judges, sliders!
