Shrimp Stuffed Bell Peppers

Taco Tuesday – in a bell pepper! Gorgeous Stuffed Bell Peppers like my mom always made! Made these with beautiful bell, poblano and jalapeno peppers from Creekside Natural Farm! Made the sauce with Creekside heirloom tomatoes- they taste like candy! 

These peppers bring back so many wonderful memories of my mom’s. She always made four at a time. Hers were always green- the only color available then. 

Bell peppers are a fantastic source of vitamins A, B6 and E; beta carotene, potassium and folate.
