Holiday Stuffed Peppers Recipe
- Red and Green Peppers (one per person as a side, or 2 per person as a main)
- Sundried Tomatoes
- 80g Feta Cheese
- 20g Cheddar Cheese
- Frank’s RedHot® Smoked Chipotle Sauce
- 1 Onion
- 1 Spring Onion
- 1 Chilli
- Tomato Puree
- Salt and Pepper
- Fresh coriander
- Soured Cream to serve
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees. Part-boil the orzo until al dente. While this is cooking, fry onion, chilli and sundried tomato in a pan until softened. Drain the orzo and add to the pan with the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper and add in a teaspoon of tomato puree and a generous few shakes of Frank’s RedHot® Smoked Chipotle Sauce. Turn off the heat and stir through the feta cheese and a handful of freshly chopped coriander.
Hollow out the peppers and fill with the orzo mixture. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle over the cheddar cheese. Return to the oven until the cheese topping has melted. Serve with a sprinkle of coriander, chopped spring onion and a dollop of soured cream. You can also add a few more dashes of Frank’s RedHot® Smoked Chipotle Sauce for extra heat!
