This recipe uses leftover spanish rice and a little bit of the pork from Al Pastor taco night. Basically the rice is brown rice with carrots, peas, a little tomato paste, chili powder, salt and pepper. Stuffed peppers is a wonderful way to use left over rice! Thrown in some veggies, maybe cheese or sauce and voila, dinner!

In these Southwest Stuffed Peppers I used the leftover spanish rice, added some corn, black beans and fresh cilantro. Topped with organic black bean salsa and baked in the oven until the pepper is tender. Finish off with a dollop of light sour cream and you've got yourself a wonderful meal! There really isn't a recipe to this its more the method... there are endless varieties!
