Prep time: 15 min.
Total time: 1 hr., 25 min.
¼ cup GOYA® Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
1 piece GOYA® Chorizo, finely chopped
¼ cup GOYA® Sofrito
2 tbsp. GOYA® Sazonador Total
6 medium bell peppers (red, green, orange and/or yellow) tops cut off, seeds and veins removed
2 lbs. meatloaf mix (ground pork, ground beef and ground veal)
2 cans (8 oz. each) GOYA® Tomato Sauce
1 cup cooked CANILLA Extra Long Grain Rice, cooled
2 tbsp. pine nuts
2½ tsp. GOYA® Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning with Pepper, plus more to taste
|1.||Heat oven to 400°F. Heat 2 tbsp. oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and chorizo to pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions soften and chorizo starts to brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in sofrito and sazonador total; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds more; set aside until cool.|
|2.||In medium bowl, gently mix together meatloaf mix, tomato sauce, cooked rice, reserved sofrito mixture, pine nuts and 2½ tsp. adobo until combined.|
|3.||Coat peppers with remaining oil; sprinkle cavities with adobo. Transfer peppers to 9”x13” baking dish. Divide meat mixture evenly among pepper cavities. Cook until peppers are soft and meat mixture is cooked-through (internal temperature should register 165°F on quick-read thermometer), about 1 hour. Let sit 10 minutes before serving.|
Prevent Peppers from Toppling!
To keep your peppers standing upright, try this: Before stuffing the peppers, cut a very thin slice from the base to even out the bottom. Once cooked, the pre-leveled peppers will stand up straight and tall and the tasting filling will stay inside where it belongs
