Then I left to cool and blended all together with a knob of butter and warmed through on the stove to serve.
It's still the camera phone yeah
For the pepper stuffing I cooked off onions and garlic again and a little salt and paprika then added some mixed beef & pork mince and cooked through until browned and then added cooked saffron rice and mixed in thoroughly whilst cooking for a few more minutes. I then filled the peppers half full with the mixture and then a layer of tomato sauce then another layer of filling and cooked covered in the oven for 45 minutes. Then I uncovered and sprinkled with cheese and cooked for a further 15 minutes to melt and brown the cheese. Finish off with another drizzle of tomato sauce on top.
Sorry that turned into a full description
Anyway, trust me it was absolutely delicious
Yeah, that is sort of the way I have made it in the past. I love the fact that you used yellow peppers. They looks smashing!
I have even stuffed red bell peppers before with chili and it turned out pretty good!
