The other night I made stuffed peppers and they were awesome. I
adapted Julie's recipe from Peanut Butter Fingers and it made for an easy to assemble, delicious meal. I think this recipe would be great for a midweek meal when you don't want to spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen.
To make them I mixed together shredded cooked chicken, 1/2 a cup of marinara sauce, 3/4 cup fresh salsa, and a packet of Knorr's soup mix. I then cut off the tops of 4 green bell peppers, removed the seeds, and put the chicken mixture inside. I baked them in a 400 degree oven for 40 minutes. At first I thought I was going to be sad that didn't have cheese (pretty much everything I make has a substantial amount) but it ended up being really flavorful and I didn't miss it at all.
