try this tasty spanish tapas recipe for stuffed peppers ...

Who hasn't been tempted to buy brightly-colored peppers from your local greengrocer?

Not only do they come in all shapes and sizes, nowadays they come in all colors, too!

What's more, they're chock-a-block full of healthy vitamin C.

But, what do you do with them once they're in your fridge?...

... Why not try out this deliciously simple recipe for peppers stuffed with chicken?

You'll find it ideal for using up left-over chicken or turkey.

Although a tapas recipe - it's one of 300 you'll discover in my Spanish Tapas Kindle Book - as with most tapas recipes, it's extremely versatile and you can easily turn it into a full, main meal simply by adding a portion of rice.

In the photo above, I happened to use small, thin green peppers.

But the size and shape of your peppers don't really matter, and nor does the size.

Using bell peppers?... Just slice the top off and have them standing to attention.

Are your peppers large and long?... Slice them in half lengthwise before filling, and lay them on their sides.

And, now for the recipe ...
