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

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut tops off peppers and remove the seeds and ribs.

  4. When shrimp are pink, remove shrimp from the pan. Cut shrimp into bite-sized pieces.
  5. Combine rices and the spices in pan and let simmer. Add shrimp to pan. Also add tomato sauce. Cook over medium heat.
  6. Add bread crumbs and 1/2 the parmesan cheese.
  7. Stuff peppers graciously and top with the remaining parmesan cheese.
  8. Cook in casserole dish for 15-20 minutes, until the parmesan cheese is melted and bubbling.

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.

Now wait a minute. Anyone could see it was going to be spicy but really was a great recipe. I reduced the salt by half, subtitled a cup of quinoa and one cup of rice and one cup of my home made chunky tomato sauce. It was fabulous!, I will try do again.

This recipe is a total failure. I had to have my granddaughter read the recipe to make sure I was reading it correctly. I was! I had reservations about the recipe; waaay to much cayenne, and chili powder so I drastically reduced them. No par boiling of the peppers. But I thought it must be right. Shame on me for moving forward with the recipe! Another example of: trust your gut feeling. What a first-impression of a site!<br/> <br/>of using anything else
