Is it feeling Fall-ish at all for any of you yet?  Maybe with the kids going back to school and possibly cooler temperatures.  But here in Florida it is still a hot, humid 95 degrees most days.  So either way, a warm and cozy meal that doesn’t heat up the house works for us all!  🙂

Cook Time

Ingredients:
  1. 6 multi-colored peppers
  2. 4 Cups cooked Brown Rice/Quinoa
  3. 1 Cup black beans (or more if you omit meat)
  4. 2 Cups of cooked bite size meat of your choice (optional)
  5. 2 Cups Vegetable broth
  6. Seasonings to taste (cumin, oregano, garlic, red pepper flakes etc.)
What to do:
  1. Cut off the tops of the peppers and scrape or wash out the seeds. Save the tops!
  2. Pour the 2 cups of broth into the bottom of the crockpot.
  3. Add a little less than half of the rice/quinoa. You need just enough to help keep the peppers from tipping over.
  4. Make a mixture of the rest of the rice/quinoa, black beans and meat.
  5. Add your preferred seasonings. (Honestly, I am not very good at exact measurements of seasonings. I usually just throw in a pinch of this or that until it tastes good to me!)
  6. Place the bottom half of the peppers in the crockpot and then fill with rice/meat mixture. Place the tops back on the peppers to keep the mixture from drying out.
  7. Cover and cook in the crockpot for 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low. Less if you want them the peppers to be more firm.
