I’ll admit it. I’m a bit of a cheapskate. Not because I like to be, but because it’s just something inside of me – in my DNA or something. When I set out to put this recipe together, Heather said, “Ooo, get the pretty tri-colored peppers. That will look so good in the photo.” So I be-bop off to the grocery store to collect my ingredients. Finding my way through the produce section, my eyes are immediately drawn to the beautiful red, orange, and yellow bell peppers. I think to myself, “Oh yes, those will be beautiful fall colors for this recipe.” I glance up at the price… $1.88 each. Hmmm, I think. Then I glance over at the green peppers. Looking up at the price I see $.31 each. “What!??!,” I think. “31 cents?!?!?” Needless to say, I went with the green peppers. And trust me, it tasted just the same. It may not have looked as pretty, but it tasted the same.
Based on the success of the Stuffed Peppers recipe, I decided to develop something else with the same flavors. It’s hearty and delicious and perfect for a cool Fall evening. Topping it with creamy mashed potatoes really puts it over the top. I hope this will become an instant favorite in your house just like it has in ours!
