Spanish Main Stuffed Poppers

READY IN: 42mins
Recipe by Miss Fannie

Shiver me timbers, mates! Barrels of Aborio Rice were plundered from an Italian trading vessel. One Eyed Jack, the ship's Spanish cook served these at Capt'n Morgan's table. They were so fine, the Capt'n rewarded him with a mug of his famous rum.

I thought this was flavorful and the stuffed peppers reminded me of a chili relleno (without the breading.) I liked the veggie loaded stuffing and plan to try it in a bell pepper too. Great intro and good use of the contest ingredients! Good luck!
