Stuffed Capsicums or Red Bell Peppers

READY IN: 33mins
Recipe by Mandy

Adapted from a Sun Rice Recipe, this is a great side dish or appetizer for dinner parties because it presents so well. It is quite filling though so would make a great light lunch or dinner on its own too. You could also add some chopped tomato or kidney beans as an alternative.

I really liked this recipe. Very tasty, easy to make and economical. I used basil and garlic chives as my herbs and it worked really well. Loved the inclusion of the sour cream. I've just finished one cold, for lunch, and I really like it liked that too. I'll be making these again. Mine did take a little longer to cook but that was my mistake. I crammed them into a fairly high-sided baking dish and the bottom halves didn't cook as quickly. I placed them on a shallow tray and they cooked in no time.
