Broken Glass Isn’t Going to Rain on my Parade…
So after a great workout at the gym I was getting my purse out of my trunk and then this happened.
To say I was sad/mad/angry/pissed/near tears would all be pretty much accurate. I had no one to blame but myself but that didn’t change my raging emotions. Apparently after posting about the unfortunate event I learned I’m not alone. Many friends told me to find someone on craigslist to fix it for 80 or so bucks. That’s WAY cheaper than paying for a new phone or going to Apple to get a replacement since I’m out of warranty now. The phone still works perfectly fine it’s just not pretty to look at.
I didn’t let this ruin my life day for too long and decided to make a delicious dinner. I only made two because that’s how many peppers I bought and I only bought two because Darren hates peppers. These bad boys were all mine and that’s how I like it.
Mexican Style Stuffed Peppers
- 2 Bell Peppers (your color of choice, I chose green)
- 1 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast – thawed
- 2 Cups Salsa
- 1 Can Black Beans
- 1/4 – 1/2 a cup of Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese
- Items for garnishing – Sour Cream, Sliced Avocado, Black Olives, etc.
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cut top of the peppers off and clear out seeds. I also cut a little off the bottom so mine stood in an upright position.
- Put a steamer basket inside a pot and add an inch or so of water. Place the peppers in the basket. Bring the water to a boil and tightly cover the pot. Steam the peppers for 8 minutes. Remove the peppers with tongs and set them aside.
- In another pot boil the chicken breast for about 30 minutes or until cooked through.
- Remove chicken and cut into bite size pieces or shred to small pieces. It should shred pretty easy after being boiled.
- Place chicken, black beans, and salsa in a pot. Cook for about 5 minutes until beans are warmed.
- Take the mixture from #6 and place spoonfuls in the peppers. Fill to the top and sprinkle with cheese.
- Place in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted.
- Take out and serve with any mixtures you like. I cut one in half and covered in a spoonful of the chicken/bean mixture that was leftover, a little sour cream, fresh avocado and a few black olives.
