Savory Stuffed Bell Peppers #Recipe

Dear Creatives,  Nothing says fall like savory meals that are colorful & healthy!  Also two words come to mind, comfort foods! I tend to cook more now that the air is cooled down & I can heat up my kitchen. Fall is my favorite time of year, when I heat up the heart of my home the kitchen, test out new recipes or break out old ones & then get to share them with you. Today I thought I would share a recipe or two for stuffed bell peppers. You know those lovely peppers full of flavor, a little sweet, a lot of savory & plentiful this time of year.

Of  course there are a few more recipes I would love to try for stuffed bell peppers & I will share them at the bottom of this post for you too. I have made stuffed bell peppers many times without a recipe & thought I would share my version with you also.
