Stuffed pepper dinner!

heres my recipe for homemade stuffed peppers!

what you need:
* about 3cups Spanish brown rice
* 2 orange bell peppers (fresh)
* 2 yellow bell peppers (fresh)
* 1 red bell pepper (fresh)
* 1 jalapeño (fresh)
* 3 cups ground beef or grilled chicken (if using chicken skinless breasts cut into strips and then cubed works best)
* 19oz can chili
* 19oz can nacho cheese (usually found by the Mexican foods like canned jalapeño, hommes etc)
* chips
* tomato sauce
* dried basil
* pepper
* cheddar cheese

first start your rice since it will take longer then the meat. while the rice is cooking chop and dice 1/4th of a red pepper and toss it into the rice, the rice will absorb alot of flavor from the pepper.
next cook your meat, if your using beef brown it and drain it, put it on the back burner on the lowest heat so it dosent burn but stays warm.
while the rice is finishing up start the chili cheese, add the nacho cheese and chili together in a sauce pan and stir together add 1/2 jalapeño chopped and diced and 1/4 red pepper, once its blended set on the back burner to keep warm.
take two yellow and two orange peppers cut the top of and take out the middle to create a bowl, wrap in foil (not to tight) and put in the oven at 350 for about 8mins (this helps soften and give it a more smoked flavor because yes its a edible bowl!)
while the peppers are in the oven in a medium bowl add the meat, rice, 1 cup tomato sauce, a pinch of basil and a dash of pepper together and blend together.
take the peppers out of the oven spoon in the rice and meat into the orange pepper (orange peppers have a slightly sweet flavor to off set the savory taste of the meat).
top with cheddar cheese (or any cheese you like)
spoon in chili cheese to the yellow pepper (even tho its more of a dipping bowl you can eat it to as it is or use chips! the yellow pepper has a tangy sweet taste which will make the fresh jalapeño pop!
plate and your ready to dine!
