What can I serve with Stuffed Peppers?

What goes with stuffed peppers? I was thinking scalloped potatoes or sour cream potatoes. Is that too much starch, since there is rice in the stuffed pepper recipe?

The reason I am asking is because I have some sour cream I have to use.

make a mexican style stuffed pepper and top it with sour cream

Personally stuffed peppers for me are a meal in itself, at most the only thing else I would possibly want is a side salad. Are you putting meat in the stuffing as well?

You could make an appetizer with the sour cream. Rice and potatoes...eh.

Yes, ground beef. That mexican idea sounds good!

Speaking of beef, you could always cut the peppers in half and lay them down so the inside is facing up, then stuff that with the rice (seasoned how you like), and then top that with some of your favorite cuts of beef (cut into smaller strips), I personally really like top sirloin and skirt steak.

I've decided on the mexican stuffed peppers with nice side salad.... maybe a piece of garlic bread.

Can you post pictures in this forum? I'm just getting used to this....

Or, would I have to post the recipe in the beef or menus forum?

I always serve a cesar salad or some other green salad on the side. It's a refreshing balance to such a flavorful main course.

Mom's stuffed peppers never had rice in them, so I don't use it either. I always serve them with mashed potatoes and a side salad.
