The Sultana issued a challenge. Create a variation of her Grilled Stuffed Peppers, and Other Things recipe. I have done just that.
Last night, lacking inspiration for dinner, and having little in the way of ingredients, I turned to the webbernets to see if I could find something. I stumbled over the Sultana’s peppers recipe, and saw her challenge. Thus inspired, I went to the fridge armed with nothing more than the thought that I should cook something and put it in something else. Ummm. Now what?
I found lurking in the depths of the crisper, a single red pepper, a bit of onion, and a couple mushrooms. To the freezer!! Once there, I located a few pork chops, you know the ones, gross and thin and not really good for anything but shake’n'bake and a frying pan. Okay. Thoughts are forming here…what else have we got? RICE!
Ingredients in hand I began to create a guilt free meal for two.
I’m not a huge fan of red peppers. A little in a salad, hidden in spaghetti sauce, that is good, but eating half of one because it’s my meal? It was really quite good. Next time I am going to put a good cheese in the bottom after flipping over the red pepper to roast on the other side. And I am going to add garlic.
Thank you Sultana for issuing the challenge. I believe I have begun to see red peppers in a new light. Also, I have come to realize that there is a new food rule to live by. We already know;
Everything is better with bacon.
When unsure about your food, stuff it with or in something else, it will likely taste better.
This fresh salsa comes together fairly quickly and makes a fantastic and fresh addition to your nachos and tacos.View Details
Barbecue Style Tacos
Beef Carne Asada is Mexican barbecue style shredded beef marinated in chili spices. It’s particularly good on tacos and in burritos, but can be used in just about anything you would normally use ground beef for.View Details
With Injected Baked Potatoes
What if you can make beef more tender and melt in your mouth? “But How?” I hear you cry at your monitors! Inject your beef with a combination of red wine, beef stock and butter!View Details
Marinated For Good Measure
Heat it up or chill it out with your choices of curry paste and chili sauce. This saucy chicken recipe goes well over a bed of grill roasted vegetables and jasmine rice.View Details
With Rum BBQ Sauce
Nice and crispy skin with a sweet and tangy sauce caramelized over top. Tuck in to these legs, but beware, you will need some wet-naps.View Details
Nice Meat Spice
Ghost Pepper Turkey Meatballs are pretty versatile. Paired with pasta and marinara, or eaten as an appetizer, you can’t go wrong with these spicy bites of meaty goodness.View Details
With Smoked Bacon
What better way to use the last of that delicious sourdough bread that to make it into the best holiday side dish ever invented?View Details
So good it's spooky!
Fresh vegetables and grilled beef make up the bones of this dish, but watch out, it bites back! I really suggest that you serve your Ghost Pepper Chili with a dollop of sour cream, some cheese or a tall and cold glass of milk.View Details
