"Filled with rice, these make a great side dish. I like to use all different color peppers. Prep time doesn't include cooking the rice. Can be made ahead, just add to the baking time."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Scaled back for one serve and it made a delicious light lunch. I was slightly confused as to if I was supposed to mix the rice with the cheese mix and then put the lot into the capsicum and sprinkle with extra cheese on top but I put the rice in the bottom and topped with extra cheese and popped in the oven and 20 minutes later cooked to perfection. Cannot get Monterey cheese at the moment so mixed mozzarella and parmesan and used that but after eating I think I will mix the rice and cheese mix together and then place in the capsicum.
