Leftover Makeover

img_20190319_181831.jpg

Everyone struggles with leftovers.  They either don’t reheat well or it is just another boring repetitive meal.  I had taco meat leftover, not enough for a meal and certainly not worth buying 12 more taco shells.  I also had leftover rice (we had it with stir-fry) and it was not making a curry or turning it into fried rice—too many ingredients to buy to rescue rice!  Instead, I bought two green peppers and used it to make Stuffed Peppers!!!  I usually make Stuffed Peppers from scratch, but this time, I just mixed the rice with the beef and filled in the de-seeded, halved pepper shells.  The trick is to roast the shells with olive oil, salt and pepper  before–this softens the peppers and makes it easier to eat.  Roasted peppers smell delicious too!!! Fill the soft, roasted shells with leftover rice and beef mixture,  top with cheese and breadcrumbs, broil, and dinner is ready !!!
