Mexican Stuffed Peppers


This is a super simple and filling recipe that my husband and I both love.

You can scale it to fit your needs, but we like to make enough to have leftovers the next day for lunch, which I highly recommend. I pretty much do that with dinner as much as possible to keep thing easy, because I’m all about that!

So give it a try and enjoy!
