Crepes of Wrath’s recipe for Mexican Stuffed Peppers caught my eye as soon as she posted it. I love stuffed peppers, they make great leftovers too, such neat little packages. 🙂
However, since I have to be a bit more careful about my calorie intake, I felt the need to modify the recipe a bit. Here’s how I did it:
Starting with the rice, I used the awesome organic short grain brown rice we got at Costco.
I skipped the oil and sauteing, and just pureed the garlic with the can of tomatoes in the blender and dumped everything into my rice cooker. If you don’t have a rice cooker you can use Crepes of Wrath’s method and skip the sauteing, or use a saucepan on the stove. Whatever works best for you!
