I filled the red peppers with wild rice mixed with fennel, onions, and garlic. I then cooked it on the barbecue until the skin was charred and blistered. You can double the recipe or just use one color pepper.
You can use any rice you prefer and also feel free to mix up the spices and veggies that go inside.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did
