When I got home I decided to go for a treasure hunt in the cabinets to see what I had to make with them. My biggest challenge in the kitchen is always to trying to see what I can make with what I have at home.

 


Some people love to run out for ingredients but that makes me crazy. I try to do groceries once a week and plan my meals with I have in my home. You can always substitute something for something else or leave it out.

I had Greek stuff peppers with a friend about a week ago and got to thinking, why don’t I make my version of Mexican Stuff Peppers? We love Mexican food and peppers seem to be the perfect fit. How much do you like Mexican food?

How To Prepare the Peppers

I like to prepare my peppers by cutting the top of the pepper from the top. I like the look of serving it with a little hat on top.

  1. Cut the pepper from the top.
  2. Rinse in cold water and remove all the seeds.
  3. Let dry on a towel so the inside is facing down.
  4. Once the peppers are dry, place in a glass pan and sprinkle some olive oil inside along with some garlic powder.

Tip: Try buying different colors peppers for a colorful meal setting.
