Mexican Rice stuffed in Capsicum

Capsicums or belle peppers are cultivated world wide. In many cuisines around the world cooks use this as their cooking element. It can be use as a spice to give your food a good taste and it’s also a very good vegetable with so much nutritional benefits.

I use capsicums to garnish my salads sometimes. They are one of my fav vegetables.

Another very nice way of using capsicums is to stuff them using mince meat , boiled rice and some diced vegetables and baking them in the oven.

I bought a heap on special in my favourite fruit and vegetable barn. I used some to top my home made pizza and the rest for this delicious goodness.
