Mexican Stuffed Peppers With Avocado Cream


by: EatRunLiveHappy

I made these last night and they were a big hit. This would be a perfect dish to serve at your Cinco De Mayo party. Cinco De Mayo is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. No, I'm not Mexican. I do get asked a lot if I am though. Maybe I am and no one wants to tell me. I do have hot sauce in my veins. I also get asked if I'm asian though too... I'm Eskimo guys... Eskimo. Just kidding. I'm just a mutt. So embrace all heritages. ANYWHO... I could eat Mexican food every single day. Seriously. I need to learn Spanish. Random.

1.  Since everything is cooked all you have to do is throw all the ingredients in a sauce pan (except peppers of course) and let it simmer together on low for 5-10 minutes. Cut off the top of the peppers and take out the inside seeds. Scoop the brown rice, chicken mixture into the peppers and bake at 350 degrees until the peppers are tender. About 45 minutes. Let cool slightly and top with cream.
