This spicy filling is perfect for stuffed peppers. I cheat and use Zatarains Dirty Rice Mix, works well with any Dirty Rice recipe.

This is my second time making this recipe and I absolutely love it. My family loves it as well. Very tasteful. I followed all the instructions but boiled the bell peppers a few minutes to get them soft before stuffing them. That takes away the crunch when they're done.

This was wonderful dish! Hubby and I both loved it and it will definitely be added to rotation. It's such a great play on stuffed peppers and the flavors are a nice balance and blend.
