Mexican Stuffed Peppers

One dish that I absolutely love, but never make enough is stuffed peppers. There are so many ways to prepare them with a variety of filling options, however the task often seems to great. While I’ve found a hack to speed up the process, it really isn’t rocket science and I often wonder why recipes I used in the past didn’t suggest this trick!

While my Three Bean Chili is an easy go-to recipe for this weather, especially since I can make it in a big batch and freeze for later, sometimes I want that same flavor and heartiness with a creamy texture.
