The Chew: Carla Hall Stuffed Peppers
The Chew paired Carla Hall and Clinton Kelly together to create stuffed peppers with a Mexican fiesta twist. Check out their idea for this Stuffed Poblanos recipe, complete with a tasty green salsa. If you can’t find Poblanos or you just don’t like them, try using green or red bell peppers instead.
Daphne Oz compared the filling to a Mexican corn pudding, and Carla noted you could use brown rice if you prefer.
