Beef & Rice Stuffed Peppers

There’s this recipe on Buzzfeed for a NY food truck style chicken & rice dish and I made it and it was so delicious. But I thought, hmm… it’s missing something. So, I remade it with a few twists and I was SO excited to share it with you all because it turned out so great.

Then I realized, it was so good that we ate it all before I even had a chance to take any photos of it. Ugh. So it looks like that recipe will have to wait and be shared next week when I make it again. But I didn’t want to make you wait a whole week for a new post, because it’s been a couple of weeks!

So I leave you with this recipe for stuffed peppers to get you through to next week’s stellar post about chicken and rice. Enjoy!
