Recipe UNO

I was planning on creating a food blog a long time ago, wanting a more "grown up" version of me posting recipes as facebook notes, so this class has inspired me to actually go through with it!

The purpose of this isn't just for recipes so I promise I will post other interesting things.

IT'S SUMMER! So I have to put up an awesome summer food. And it isn't really summer time until you grill things, so here is an easy BBQ option!

Stuffed Peppers!

1 C long grain rice
1/2 C wild rice
3 C H2O
1 Jalapeno, seeded and diced
1 Medium Yellow Onion, diced
1 15 oz can of Rotel Tomatoes (don't use all the juice)
1/2 15 oz can of Black Olives

Salt to taste
Ground Pepper to taste

8 (that's right, Eight) Green Bell Peppers (or any other color you desire)

1. Cook rice!
2. Cut out top of peppers and remove all seeds
3. Dice onion, jalapeno and black olives and put in a large bowl
4. Mix diced veggies, can of Rotel (minus most of the juice) rice, salt and pepper together
5. Spoon stuffing into the peppers (you have to squish it in pretty good or else it will fall out on the grill)

Place over medium heat coals.
I put mine on their sides and kept turning them about every 6 min or so.
Cook until outsides start getting brown (about 20 min)

I made this recipe up, it was my first attempt at stuffing something (hehehe) and these turned out really great!


  1. I am Intrigued by these so called "stuffed peppers". I shall give them a try and if they are not up to my liking, I will banish you to Delaware.

  2. Yum - these sound great! The only time I have ever had stuffed peppers was in Lafayette, Louisiana, and they were delicious! If I ever get around to trying this (wish I had a grill), I think I'll throw in some cayenne pepper and cajun seasoning (and maybe a bit of worcestershire and hot pepper sauce?) for a bit of southern spice :) Also, try cooking the rice in some stock instead of water to make it extra flavorful!

  3. I ate one of these at your BBQ, before I had "tasted the rainbow," and it was freakin' the DELICIOUSEST.
