I enjoy stuffed peppers, but they certainly aren’t my favorite food. However, my husband likes them a bit more than I, so I try to get them into the meal plan at least every couple of months. This past week I had decided it was time to make them and when I told my husband he said that he had recently come across a recipe for mexican stuffed peppers. I was intrigued. I love mexican food and the chance to spice up something that I can usually take or leave got me a little excited. I could have gone online and found a recipe to get me started…but I decided to sort of wing it instead and I have to say that I really enjoyed the results and will probably be adding these to the rotation a bit more often.
So perhaps I am being a bit big headed with the name of my recipe, but I truly believe that in many cases, you can take what you love from a restaurant and make it at home so that it tastes better and is better for you. Does this always apply? No, of course not…I will never be able to replicate the delicious gravy that goes over the mashed potatoes and chicken fried steak at one of our local restaurants, but when it comes to something a little more simple such as the Chipotle Burrito Bowl, I absolutely think that you can make a tasty version right in your own kitchen.
