Jack O’Lantern Pilaf Peppers
1 package Pilaf, cooked as directed
2 cups shredded chicken
1.5 cups shredded cheese
4 bell peppers
To assemble, cut the top off of the peppers and remove seeds. Fill a pot with water and bring to a boil. Carve out face with pairing knife, being careful to keep the eyes and mouth small enough to keep stuffing inside. Place each pepper in the boiling water for about 4 minutes to soften. Remove and drain.
Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl, mix together pilaf, shredded chicken and 1 cup of shredded cheese. Spoon mixture into peppers and place in baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
