These stuffed bell peppers satisfy a hearty, healthy meal and are pretty simple to make. First, I suggest choosing your favorite type of rice– white, brown, quinoa, etc. as the main stuff in your stuffed bell peppers. Then, choose as many of your favorite fillings as you wish to combine into the peppers. Lastly, choose a light cheese to top the peppers with to add a melty, flavorful touch. The recipe I made consisted mainly of items that were already available in my fridge. They turned out delicious. Here’s my version of stuffed bell peppers below. 🙂
