If you like stuffed peppers, you'll love this speedy version. It offers all the comforting flavor of the original, but takes just half an hour. Instead of cooking the instant rice, you can use 2 cups leftover cooked rice if you have it on hand. —Beth Dewyer, Du Bois, Pennsylvania
MY HUSBAND likes stuffed peppers, but my old recipe made too much. I devised this recipe to accommodate just the two of us. It helps to use a small-size casserole so the peppers won't tip over while baking.
For color, I serve steamed carrots with the peppers, rounding out the meal perfectly. —Elaine Carpenter

You're sure to enjoy this tasty twist on traditional stuffed peppers. Crisp-tender pepper cups hold a colorful filling that gets south-of-the-border flavor from salsa and cumin. They're fast to assemble using convenience items such as instant rice and frozen corn.
