Full of flavor, these stuffed bell peppers are easy to make, tasty and nutritious!
Tip: Precooking bell peppers makes their time in the oven short. Green bell peppers are the classic choice, but you don’t have to be traditionalist. Stuff red, yellow and orange bells and bring the color of fall to your dinner table!

We encourage you to experiment – it’s fun to add your own flair and flavors!
Add pepper flakes or garlic to spice things up or add one of your favorite herbs – think basil, oregano or fresh thyme. Tomatoes are also a nice compliment, either sauce or diced.
