READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Erin Marie M

I had an idea to combine shrimp and rice in bell peppers instead of the usual ground beef, and it came out fantastic!

WAAAAY too spicy! It's my fault - I should have used some common sense when preparing this recipe, but I just followed it exactly. As much as I WANTED to be able to eat them - and wanted my guest to be able to eat them - they were entirely too spicy. I'm not a spice wimp either! There was an underlying delicious flavor, but it just wasn't worth the mouth-flaming spicy hotness! Could be a delightful recipe if you're careful to tone the use of cayenne and white pepper WAAAAAY down.
