Stuffed Bell Peppers

At one point or another you probably have heard about stuffed peppers. Peppers are one of our favorites go to foods!
So many types of peppers and so many ways to eat them, stuff them and play with them (just don't tell my daughter that I said that I like to play with them, she would say "We don't play with the food mommy").

Stuff them using different ingredients, use different varieties of peppers and enjoy them. In this occasion, we are featuring stuffed orange and yellow bell peppers, we used a mixture of Spanish rice and ground beef to stuff our bell peppers. But essentially it's your choice of rice mixture stuffed into bell peppers and baked in the oven.

I love stuffed peppers. I used to make them for my family and boyfriend during high school.
I haven't tried them with raisins before. That sounds interesting!

this sounds delicious. I don't eat peppers but I always wondered what was the mix inside them. I'd certainly eat that
