Summer Stuffed Peppers

Summer Stuffed Peppers

Late summer is the best time to use garden produce!  I absolutely love to stroll the farmers market for beautiful fruits and vegetables.  It’s even better when you can plan your meals around what is in season, but of course, that takes some planning.    

Making stuffed peppers can seem a little intimidating, but we are sharing the perfect 6-ingredient recipe that will have you feeling like a cooking queen! Summer stuffed peppers the whole family will love!

Stuffed peppers can sound a little intimidating, but this recipe is sort of a “hack”.  It calls for v8 juice and a box of rice-a-roni and the ingredient list is only six items!

It is so simple to throw together, but it does need several hours to simmer on the stove. 

Try to find large peppers big enough to stuff and hold up while cooking.  I place them into a dutch oven to cook, but you can use any large stockpot. The v8 juice gives the cooked peppers a perfect flavor, but you can substitute tomato juice.
