How about a quick and easy recipe for a delicious and healthy meal? Sound like a plan to you, then Chicken Enchilada Stuffed Peppers are right up your ally. These peppers are easy to make, the hardest part may be boiling the water for the rice or even cooking the chicken sounds pretty easy right? It is! We used a large butcher knife to cut the peppers in half and scraped out all the seeds because no one really wants to eat those. While at the same time boiling the rice in a large pot. While all this is happening put the chicken on a medium temperature and start to cook it. Don’t worry too much about making sure the rice is completely cooked and soft this will go into the oven for a final bake.

We’ve tested this recipe in large batches just to get rid of all the excess and “old” rice we had on hand, plus our local market had a sale on peppers so why not kill two birds with one stone? Since we did a large test batch of these you should know you can save them for later. All you need to do to make these a freezer meal is avoid the final step of baking them in the oven and wrap them up in your freezer. We thawed ours the night before we were going to make them and put them in the oven for the final bake and they turned out just as delicious as before! Happy cooking!
