Paella Stuffed Peppers

Hello everyone, my latest recipe is for these delicious Paella Stuffed Peppers. I made a quick paella, stuffed the peppers and topped with a little cheddar cheese before baking. You can make alternative version of this recipe by adding in some chorizo or chicken into the paella rice.

I also make a breakfast version of this recipe with bacon, tomatoes and a baked egg. Next time I make it I’ll take a photograph and write up the recipe.
