Stuffed peppers


Ingredients (serves 6)
3 medium bell peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
2 tablespoons DHC Núñez de Prado Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cups short grain white rice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 large onion
1/2 green or red bell pepper, diced
1/2 pound lean ground meat
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon crushed marjoram
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups canned tomatoes, chopped or diced, with juice
1/2 cup grated cheese*

Preheat oven to 350F.
1. Place bell pepper halves in baking dish; add a half-inch of hot water and cover with foil. Bake for 20 minutes.

2. In a heavy pan, heat olive oil, add rice, and sauté until lightly brown and toasted. Remove from pan; reserve.

3. In the same pan, add the garlic, onion, and diced pepper and sauté until softened. Add the ground meat and continue to cook until browned, breaking up meat with a spoon. (Drain fat if necessary.)

4. Stir in cumin, marjoram, chili powder, and salt. Stir in reserved rice, chicken broth, and canned tomatoes.

5. Bring to a boil, cover tightly, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.

6. Divide rice mixture between the peppers, sprinkle grated cheese on top, and bake for 20 minutes.

Stuffed peppers

You can use any delicious, meltable cheese you like. Manchego, a sheep's milk cheese from Spain, and Gruyère, a cow's milk cheese named for a town in Switzerland, are two wonderful options.
