Sue's Stuffed Peppers

susan simons


Yesterday I knew I wanted to make stuffed peppers and have made them many different ways in the past, I was going to try a new recipe but didn't have all the ingredients...Sooo, I winged it and combined that recipe and my recipe for spanish rice, with a few modifications, and this is what I came up with. Hubby loved it and said it was a keeper, it's not too bad if I do say so my self; the filling has just a little zing to it.
