So, I know I told you that I would only share recipes that cooked themselves and hopped onto the table, eagerly anticipating your arrival home. Regrettably, I still haven’t had success with that one. However, this could be one of the easiest, most delicious meals I’ve made in awhile, so I must share (drumroll please) Crock-Pot Stuffed Peppers.
I made a couple of minor adjustments. I used brown rice instead of white, ground turkey instead of ground beef, and only red peppers because I’m difficult like that. One short cut I tried to make was mixing the filling the night before. Safe yourself the mushy rice and don't mix the rice in, store it individually. Duh. It was easy and healthy for a crock-pot recipe. (Isn’t is disconcerting that spellcheck caught crockpot and tried to replace it with crackpot?) The family loved it, which is a major accomplishment, as it isn’t easy to please a picky toddler and a husband who is leery of dinner being served in a vegetable. No one went to bed hungry, got violently ill, or sprouted any additional appendages as the result of this expedition in the kitchen, thus classifying it an overwhelming success.
Do you have any great crackpot recipes to share? My family would thank you.
