Seafood Stuffed Bell Peppers

Seafood Stuffed Bell Peppers

Okay, I’m so long overdue with this one. Please forgive your girl! I was asked to film this over a month ago. I’m finally getting around to doing it. I promise these peppers are worth the wait! This is the seafood version. Duh, Coop! I know you already read the title. But, anyway, these things are overstuffed! That’s a good thing! stuffed-peppersWatch me make em……

De-dang-licious! I don’t even know what you should serve with these bad boys. Hmmm….you’ve already got the protein from the meat and the pepper is your veggie, if you actually eat the dang thing which you should! I guess you can add a salad or more veggies. But, they can definitely stand alone! You can also freeze these. Just stuff the peppers, let them cool completely, and put them in a freezer safe container. Don’t bake them. Wait until you’re ready to serve to thaw and bake for 30 mins, or until heated thoroughly, on 350 degrees F. To my darling Cookies with seafood allergies, don’t worry. I have a non-seafood version that contains rice. I’ll do that for you soon.

Love,
