Easy Stuffed Pepper Casserole

With 4 kids getting older it’s becoming harder to find meals that everyone enjoys and will eat while still maintaining my standards for offering my family healthy dinners. The kids would be perfectly happy with frozen chicken nuggets and macaroni every single night but I’m pretty sure someone would revoke my mom card for feeding my kids that on a regular basis. I have a master list of dinners that we all enjoy but quite honestly we are all tired of the same old dinners. A person can only eat the same 10 meals in rotation for a few weeks before the mere thought of Chicken Soft Tacos will inspire eye rolling and groaning. We have reached that point in my house. I spent the last few weeks on a hunt for some new and different dinner options to try. It’s the perfect time to change up my meal plan with the start of fall, football, and crockpot season upon us.

The biggest requirements I have for dinner options is ease of preparation, low cost, and the inclusion of vegetables. Feeding 3 hungry kids, a football playing teenager, and a husband takes a lot of food every night. I tend to gravitate towards preparing one-dish casseroles, crockpot meals, and dinners including rice. Rice is one thing every member of my family agrees on- we all love it. I’m always on the hunt for new dishes made with rice because I know the kids will eat it without complaint even if the dish includes green vegetables.

One of the main staples in my pantry is Success® White Rice for a multitude of reasons. Success® Rice is the original no measure, no mess boil-in-bag rice that cooks perfectly every time and is ready in 10 minutes. The white and brown rice can sit for up to 30 minutes in hot water (with the heat off) before being served, making it foolproof and worry-free for those nights when we are really busy and running late. Success® White Rice is gluten-free, an excellent source of complex carbohydrates, and is available in two sizes (14 oz. and 32 oz.) to accommodate various household sizes. Guess which size we always buy? The big box!  A few weeks ago I came across an interesting new recipe and as soon as I saw that it was a one-dish casserole that also included rice I knew we had to try it soon.
