“The perfect got to recipe to spice up your dinner. This is a dish I learned from my mother. It has a ton of Puerto Rican influence on a typical American dish. (: Time may vary depending on your oven. It would be best to cook the rice before and let cool. Great as a dish on its own or can be paired with scalloped potatoes or mashed potatoes.”
4-8 peppers
