Meal time is family time and I don't want to spend that precious time stressing about what to make for dinner or slaving over the stove. That’s why it's so helpful that Unilever products and Albertson’s-Safeway stores have quick and tasty meal solutions everyone can enjoy. You know how everyone has that one recipe that they always plan on making? For me, Stuffed Peppers was that recipe that I've always wanted to make but just never got around to it. Well, the day has finally come. Thanks to the recipes I found on Make More of Mealtime I was able to make a variation of the stuffed peppers recipe with just 4 ingredients that I picked up at Albertson's. 

Just to make this even better, this whole meal cost less than $10 and everything you see here I purchased at Albertsons. 

  • Knorr Rice Sides Cheddar Broccoli flavor
  • 2 Bell Peppers 
  • 1 tbsp Butter *I used I can't believe it's not Butter!
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 cup shredded cheese

I love to stock up on Knorr Rice Sides.  I like to pick out a few flavors to have on hand in my cabinet for quick dinner solutions. But I definitely always pick up the cheddar and broccoli, that's my favorite flavor. 

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare Knorr® Rice Sides™ - Cheddar Broccoli with water and Spread according to package directions.

2. Meanwhile, brown ground turkey in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Stir into hot rice. Cut each pepper in half and empty the contents. Generously fill each pepper with rice mixture.

3. Arrange stuffed peppers in a baking dish or cast iron skillet. Bake covered 20 minutes. Remove cover and continue baking 10 minutes or until peppers are tender. Sprinkle, if desired, with shredded cheese.

I wish you could smell how good this smells. These were delicious and so easy.

Perfect for Lent - Shrimp Fideo #KnorrCelebrations

This post is sponsored by Lunchbox, however all opinions are my own. 

Observing Lent can be a struggle when it comes to dinner time. Having to come up with new ideas that don't include meat and that everyone will enjoy is difficult and it forces you to think outside of the box. I'm up for the challenge! Lucky for us, Mexican food offers a lot of flexibility. There are tons of dishes that use vegetables and fish. We LOVE Knorr® bouillon cubes because they add that authentic Latin flavor to our favorite Lent dishes.

I decided to put a little twist on the classic Sopa de Fideo and not only add shrimp, but use Knorr® Shrimp Bullion cubes. This was my first time using Shrimp bullion cubes and I have to say I was surprised with the flavor. I love that just a spoonful of Knorr® can turn your meal into something special with delicious flavor everyone will enjoy.

All throughout Lent season, Northgate Market's has you covered with delicious options throughout the store. Want to learn how to make a delicious capirotada?! How about chiles rellenos?! Northgate stores are offering cooking demos, just visit Northgatemarkets.com for a full class schedule and locations near you. I'm signing up! 

Get your shopping list ready. In order to make my delicious Shrimp Fideo, this is what you'll need:

  • Knorr® Shrimp flavor bullion cubes (2)
  • 1/2 lb of Shrimp (cleaned/deveined)
  • 1/4 cup of oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 small can diced green chiles
  • 1 package of Fideo
  • 1 1/2 cans of tomato sauce
  • 2-3 cups Boiling Water
  1. In a large saucepan, bring oil to a high heat and add diced onions, green chiles and Knorr® Shrimp bullion cubes. Crush the Knorr® cubes into the oil and cook until onions and chiles are tender and clear.
  2. Next, add the Fideo. I bought spiral fideo and crushed it into smaller pieces then fried it in the oil until browned.  
  3. Add the tomato sauce and stir until covered, then add 2 cups of boiling water. *You may need to add more depending on how wet you want it. 
  4. Last add the shrimp. Mix in and cover on low heat for about 10 minutes. Add more water if desired and let sit covered for 10 more minutes.
