Warm Cheesy Broccoli Rice Stuffed Peppers are a fabulous vegetarian main dish or side dish!
We all have our favorite comfort foods.
The broccoli-cheese-rice combo always leaves me satisfied and cozy, like I’m wrapped in a big fuzzy blanket.
Although this beloved American dish is tantalizing, broccoli rice casserole is not normally the most healthy meal to serve your family, and is often overlooked.
Today I’m sharing my version of broccoli rice casserole. By reducing the fat and calories, then upping the veggie factor, I gave a healthy makeover to my comfort food of choice.
Talk about major wow factor.
These Cheesy Broccoli Rice Stuffed Peppers are loaded with fragrant creamy rice packed with broccoli florets and spice. Then baked to soften the peppers.
It’s important to add onions, garlic, smoked paprika, and a generous amount of Old El Paso Green Chiles to the rice to give the Cheesy Broccoli Rice Stuffed Peppers bold flavor and a smoky essence.
Wow factor indeed!
A small(er) portion of reduced fat cheese creates a silky luxurious texture in the rice.
Cheesy Broccoli Rice Stuffed Peppers are a vegetarian, and veggie-packed, side dish (or main dish) that are low on guilt and high on flavor!
The paprika and Old El Paso Green Chiles make all the difference.
Take Cheesy Broccoli Rice Stuffed Peppers to work as lunchbox leftovers. You can even bake them in the slow cooker if you so desire.
