Not only do peppers make a colorful addition to your dinner plate, they contribute a host of healthy vitamins and antioxidants. I grow green peppers in my garden and like to eat them fresh, or simmered in a pot of black beans or Picadillo. I wish I could grow red and yellow, but I haven’t managed to conquer that feat quite yet. Besides, my green peppers usually get plucked from the vine before they have time to ripen to red. But even if you can’t grow a rainbow of colorful peppers, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them. (Thank you farmer’s market friends!) Gardeners do like to share.
And if you’re looking for new and fresh ways to consume peppers, try this stuffed pepper recipe. It’s easy to make a pretty good. Even the kids will enjoy it!
This recipe lends itself well to variation, so feel free to make it your own with any addition or subtraction you prefer. Add meat, red beans instead of black, goat cheese instead of cheddar–there are no limits with this one!
