 I have 2 little chefs in my family that LOVE helping mom whenever they can in the kitchen (#3 isn’t that into it unless we’re making dessert). Making dinner together with my boys has become a must for me – but it’s not always easy to find a meal that they can actually help with (hey I don’t need to make MORE work for myself). Making Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers with Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice (Whole Grain or White) makes my life EASY! And you guys know I love easy.

Like most of my awesome cooking projects with my boys, this one began with a quick trip to Walmart to pick up my ingredients – I selected Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Whole Grain Brown for my stuffed peppers, however if you desired you could try the Whole Grain Medley or a White – but make sure to get the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice.

There are a lot of reasons to use Uncle Ben’s and all of their products – first let’s start with I can’t make rice. Yeah you heard me – I am horrible at it. So Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice (Or boil in a bag) is my friend. Number 2? It’s quick. Stuffed Peppers require the rice to be cooked, but I don’t want to spend all day cooking rice and THEN the dinner – nope Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice is awesome and cooks in the microwave FAST (like in 90 seconds kind of fast)!
