Scarlet Overkill Stuffed Peppers
***Click here for printable Scarlet Overkill stuffed peppers recipe
2 Small and 1 Large Red Bell Pepper
1 C Cooked White Rice
1 C Broccoli Florets
1/2 Yellow Onion, Diced
1/2 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 C Shredded Monterey Cheese
1 TBS Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper To Taste
Red Pepper Flakes (Optional)
To Build Scarlet:
2 Small Flour Tortillas
1/2 C Shredded Cheese of choice
1/4 C Mashed Black or Pinto Beans
Preheat oven to 415F
1. Cut and core your red peppers, rinsing them thoroughly. Slice your large bell pepper in half vertically, and quarter 1 of your smaller peppers vertically. Dice the remaining small red pepper up and set aside.
2. In a medium skillet heat your olive oil with diced pepper and onion until onions have begun to turn opaque. Add broccoli florets and continue to cook for 10 minutes on medium heat until broccoli is fork soft. Add salt, pepper, and red pepper as desired, to taste.
3. Combine pepper-broccoli mixture with rice and cheese in a bowl and stuff pepper halves/quarters until mounded generously. Place stuffed pepper portions, pepper side down, on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, or until edges of pepper begin to blacken and curl, at 415F.
4. Remove from oven and prepare 'quesadilla' portion of Scarlet by grilling the cheese between two tortillas in a lightly oiled pan over medium heat. Remove and cut a 'head' from the quesadilla. Spread mashed beans as 'hair' and arrange olive halves as 'gloves.' Use a pepper sliver for Scarlet's mouth and some olive pieces for eyes. Place one large pepper half stuffed side down as the base of her dress, and one stuffed quarter skinny side down just above on the plate. Serve alongside a minion shaped quesadilla.
