No longer do you have to slave over a hot oven for hours to get seriously delicious stuffed peppers! All you need is a pressure cooker and 10 minutes! These Pressure Cooker Mexican Stuffed Peppers are easy, heart healthy and delicious!
Growing up stuffed peppers were a staple in my house. Since we had a huge garden Mom would grow rows upon rows of peppers – green ones, never the good kind like red, orange or yellow. (I hate green ones). It’s a personal thing – to me they taste more bitter or it could simply just be my inner 7-year old acting up because I hated them then so I must hate them now. Anyway, we’d pick our peppers (and now I’m literally citing ‘peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers’ over and over in my head.. nice – and you’re welcome for it being stuck in your head now too). Yeah.. as I was saying, we’d pick the peppers and Mom would set at the kitchen table with 3-4 large roasters set up ready to do their magic. She would stuff pepper after pepper after pepper. There was one point she had so many we couldn’t give them away! Now where Mom’s Stuffed Peppers and mine differ is I love adding tomatoes into mine. They add such a rich flavor to filling plus seriously, all those healthy benefits are a huge bonus for me! Tomatoes fit into my lifestyle perfectly – I want deliciousness and healthy!
Tomatoes are heart healthy. Tomatoes are low in calories, high in fiber, and have many nutrients that are good for your overall health, including: lycopene, folate, potassium and vitamins A, B, C, and E. So what’s that all mean? Lycopene is a natural occurring chemical that gives the tomatoes their red color. It’s a powerful antioxidant that, studies have shown, can help prevent cells from being damage. Additionally it’s been shown that it can help lower cholesterol.
Tuesday’s Tip with The Kitchen Whisperer – How to EASILY remove Tea and Coffee Stains from your favorite mug
I’m a tea drinker. No, not an iced tea fan but rather a cup of hot tea lover. Ever since I was little spending Friday night to Saturday at my Grandma’s tea has been a part of my life. We’d get up super early, sit at her kitchen table while she put the kettle on and put some bread in the toaster for us. We’d have hot tea with 2 cubes of sugar and milk. Grandma never used regular sugar; only ever cubes for tea. She used to say “we don’t have money honey but there’s something fancy about using sugar cubes in tea”. She’s right, it just was…fancy.
As time went by I acquired my favorite mug. Now this mug is only EVER to be used for tea; nothing else. Why? Cause it’s my tea mug; geesh. LOL On the converse if you’re in my house and you grab MY mug um… yeah, don’t grab my mug. It’s nothing fancy. It’s just plain white, holds 20 ounces though I only put in 12 ounces of water at a time; really nothing special. But it’s my mug.
However through the years the inner wells began to stain badly. Tea and coffee does that. This drove me crazy as no matter how hard I scrubbed I couldn’t get the stains out. Sure I could use bleach but um.. I drink out of that mug so no bleach for this girl. There just had to be a better, SAFER, way to get rid of the stains. Well there is and I’m sharing it with you today!
