Tasty Delights-- *Unstuffed* Green Peppers!

Tasty Delights and Dazzling Disasters is all about playing in the kitchen and having some fun.

I'll share my delights or my disasters. Yall feel free to join in and create your own posts, share your favorite recipes, what have you. 

Heh. Thought I'd try something a little different this week and made *unstuffed* green peppers. 
And damn. It was pretty good!

My ingredients are a little different since I'm a veggie but you can do this with regular ground beef/turkey. 

Saute up your onion, peppers and garlic!

Then add in your cooked meat/veggie substitute and tomatoes.

Next add in rice and a little cheese and mix!

Pour into a casserole dish and sprinkle with mozzarella or cheddar or whatever cheese you prefer.

* I might have gone just a little cheese crazy lol

I've never actually made real stuffed bell peppers and can't seem to get myself to eat them either b/c of the whole pepper. For some reason that just doesn't work for me. But! This totally did. It was so easy to make, smelled great and was pretty tasty. 

The recipe is kind of made up. I couldn't find a recipe I really 100% liked so I kind of picked and choose the parts I liked and went with it.
