Potato Stuffed Peppers


I love stuffed peppers and I am making them often during summer time. This is one of those quick and easy recipes that go well with any meat or fish.
It’s a very tasty combination of potatoes, peppers, and onion, with a bit of spiciness from chili and ground black pepper.

It’s almost magical once you take the first bite, but maybe it is just my reminder of the childhood- food that I’ve enjoyed while growing up.

Recipe Notes

This can be stored in the airtight container for a few days. Just reheat and eat, however, it's better if served right away. You can grill these stuffed peppers but it needs to be slightly hugged or wrapped with alum foil to prevent from burning. You can add/spread Sour Cream when you pull the potatoes out and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
