How To Cook: Trader Joe’s Stuffed Peppers

by How To Mommy on 07.18.12

 My girls and I were shopping at Trader Joe’s this morning {love that store} and I smelled something wonderful.

We went back to the “Demos” section and tasted their stuffed peppers.

They were amazing and I immediately knew what was for dinner.

We had them tonight and my husband and I loved them!  Plus, they could not be easier to make.

While the girls weren’t crazy about the pepper, they did love the filling.
