College dorm cleanout

First few weeks of school and have a few things that I want to get onto the table before they start to go bad/want to use food I bought in bulk.

-Assorted hot peppers
-Green/red peppers
-Potatoes (LOTS of potatoes)
-Rice (LOTS of rice)

Any ideas? I have the rest of the ingredients a typical kitchen would have (meats, spices, vegetables, etc).

Stuffed bell peppers with rice and ground beef that has the other peppers in it. Serve with potatoes that have been boiled then cut up and baked with black peper lemon peel and a green herb like rosemary.

Serve with lemonade!

Just be yourself! Everyone else is taken.

You said you have lots of potatoes? There's nothing better than a pot of Potato Soup......here's an excellent recipe from our Discuss Cooking archives.
