We’re all busy at the beach and sailing and surfing and playing golf and…whatever! Here are a couple of recipes that will have dinner waiting for you when you get home from a day of fun!
Turkey Stuffed Peppers
- 1 pound Italian turkey sausage, removed from casing and crumbled
- 1 cup uncooked rice
- 8 ounces mozzarella, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
- 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil $
- 6 bell peppers (any color), tops removed, hollowed $
- 1 32-oz. can crushed tomatoes
- 1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
- In a medium bowl, combine sausage, rice, mozzarella and basil. Spoon mixture into peppers, filling each one about 3/4 full. Place peppers in slow cooker. Pour tomatoes over peppers. Pour broth around sides of peppers.
- Cover and cook on low until peppers are softened, rice is tender and filling is cooked through (an instant-read thermometer stuck into filling should read 165ºF), 5 to 6 hours. Sprinkle peppers with Parmesan and serve.
Pulled Pork Tacos
- 2 cups store-bought salsa, plus more for serving
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 2 tablespoons dried oregano
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- Kosher salt
- 1 2 1/2-pound boneless pork butt or shoulder, trimmed of excess fat
- 18 corn tortillas
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro sprigs
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 1 lime, cut into wedges
- In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the salsa, chili powder, oregano, cocoa, and 1 teaspoon salt. Add the pork and turn to coat.Cook, covered, until the meat is tender and pulls apart easily, on high for 4 to 5 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours.Twenty minutes before serving, heat oven to 350° F. Stack the tortillas, wrap them in foil, and bake until warm, about 15 minutes.Meanwhile, using 2 forks, shred the pork and stir into the cooking liquid. Serve with the tortillas, cilantro, sour cream, lime, and extra salsa.Tip: When using a slow cooker, resist the urge to lift the lid until the dish has cooked the minimum amount of time specified in the recipe. Each peek allows heat to escape and can increase cooking time by as much as a half hour.
