The next recipe comes from “Mexican Made Easy” by Marcela Valladolid.

[/span4][span8] The recipe tagged was for Shrimp Stuffed Little Chiles. I needed to get small yellow peppers and happened to find them at the Windsor Downtown Farmer’s Market.

[/span4][span8] I fried each pepper turning them occasionally until they were browned on all sides. I transferred them to a paper towel to drain.

[/span4][span8] Then I got to work on the stuffing for the peppers. I heated oil in a large skillet and added chopped onion and sauted it until it started to brown. Then I added chopped red pepper and let that sauté until it softened. Next finely chopped shrimp was added to the skillet and that cooked until it was cooked through (pink). I seasoned it all with salt and pepper.

[/span4][span8] I went back to the peppers and cut a slit down the length of each and scraped out the seeds. Then I filled each pepper with shrimp stuffing. In a serving bowl I mixed soy sauce with lime juice and tossed in sliced cucumbers and sliced red onion. Then I added each stuffed pepper into the bowl and it was time to eat!

Verdict:  I’m mixed on this one.  The taste was good but the flavor wasn’t anything amazing.  It was a nice light dinner (which my mom was visiting so she got to share in on it).  But the measurements/serving sizes seemed off…I had fried 6 peppers but only had enough of the stuffing to stuff 3 of them.  If anyone want the recipe for this one let me know in the comments!

  1. I agree with the flavor — they were very tasty! But you would almost have to double the ingredients for the shrimp stuffing in order to make enough for company.
