Kid-Friendly Stuffed Peppers Recipe

stuffed-peppers-04

Stuffed peppers is just one of the creative ways that I get my kids to eat their vegetables. During the summertime, our garden produces so many bell peppers, that I have to great creative in making recipes like this delicious kid-friendly stuffed peppers recipe. The only advice that I have is – don’t mention the word *peppers* when serving it. For some reason, my youngest always thinks of something spicy when we say that word, so we end up calling them stuffed veggies.
