Bell peppers are the perfect vessel to stuff with everything from rice and meat to bread. These make-shift cups are stable enough to hold fillings in, but when baked, become sweeter in taste than they already are. This red peppers stuffed with rice recipe uses red bell peppers, which are vibrant in color and sweet. You may enjoy using green bell peppers in your pepper recipes, but their earthier, bitter notes may be too much since family will be enjoying the whole pepper. Red peppers are also beneficial to use, because of their nutritional profile. Red peppers nutrition is very high in vitamins C and A, as well as fiber. Unfortunately, bell peppers have made the Dirty Dozen List for 2016 for containing up to fifteen pesticides. If possible, purchase organic bell peppers. These may be more expensive than peppers produced with the use of pesticides, but they will be a healthier addition to all your easy stuffed pepper recipes.
