Stuffed Salsa Bell-Peppers

Are you a lover of stuffed veggies? I love them, be it bharwan baingain or stuffed lady fingers. The correct amount of spices in a stuffed mixture lends an amazing taste to the boring vegetable and when cooked for an accurate time makes for a lip smacking dish. Have you tried stuffed bell peppers for starters? It’s a gorgeous looking dish with some cheese on the top, easy to cook and perfect to relish as an appetiser. What say? Do give it a try soon!

You are free to try a variety of options for the stuffing – be it dry aloo jeera or panner burji. Make these stuffed capsicums with any style of stuffing. The oozy tenderness of the stuffing after being cooked and the unique sweetness from the bell peppers just creates magic! At a recent special occasion, I had cooked this recipe with an unusual twist. When the plate was empty within just a few minutes of serving, it was a HUGE hit to me. And that’s how I’m glad today to share this delicious recipe with all of you today.

I am a true lover of homemade salsa and kidney beans salad. It’s a full protein packed combo with great taste. So these lovely coloured bell peppers are going to be stuffed with all kinds of good things. Just follow a few steps and you are ready with a lovely dish that’ll win many hearts! When you have some left over boiled kidney beans and want to throw in a twist, this is just an ideal way. Have you noticed home-made salsa tastes so much…..better than a store bought can? Fresh tomatoes give a kick-ass flavour to the salsa. Friends, it’s REALLY easy to make and now no more talk, let’ get on with the recipe.
