Since I seem to be on a roll with these “Pandemic Pantry” recipes, here is another one to use up some of that rice! As with the other pandemic recipes I have shared, this one is absolutely delicious and you will want to add it to your regular rotation. Honestly, pandemic pantry item or not, I love any kind of rice and any dish that includes it! So, of course, I couldn’t leave out one of my favorites! Unstuffed Peppers!! If you prefer to stuff your peppers, that is fine too, just omit the chopping! This recipe includes my The Absolute Best “Restaurant Style” Mexican Rice! – The Glitzy Gourmet as part of the dish, so you will want to make that first. Just follow the link! The rest comes together super quick and easy!
