Paella Stuffed Peppers

I always get so excited when I have a new variation of stuffed peppers to share with all of you. Stuffed green peppers are the perfect dinner for chilly nights this time of the year. Who am I kidding? Stuffed peppers are awesome ANY time of the year! 😄
Pretty soon in many parts of the country, including here in Pennsylvania, it will be just too cold to go outside and have fun with the family. We're forced to stay indoors and "hunker down" together. I know by the end of winter we all have cabin fever, but I really do cherish this time every year because we get to spend a lot of time together just enjoying each other. 

On super cold nights in the fall and winter, I love to plan comforting casseroles for dinner. We all sit around the dinner table chatting about our day while enjoying a delicious meal. And then afterwards we usually snuggle up on the couch under a few blankets and watch a movie or play a game. Sometimes I like to surprise the boys with some hot chocolate afterwards. It sounds wonderful, doesn't it?

I just get so passionate about sharing yummy dinner recipes like these Paella Stuffed Peppers because I want you around the dinner table with your family this season! I was inspired by Vigo's classic seafood paella recipe and decided to try it served in stuffed peppers for a fun twist. I can't even begin to describe what an amazing decision that was! 

Stuffed peppers are a classic win in my family, and stuffing them with our favorite weeknight paella just put this over the top. We are crazy for seafood and being able to enjoy yummy shrimp and clams in this dinner, during a busy weeknight on top of all the crazy schedules, made my family ecstatic!

I love how this dinner is individually portioned as well! If you're making it for company, just double the recipe if you're expecting more than 8 people for dinner. The bright colors of this dish are wonderful this time of the year, too!

paella stuffed peppers with vigo yellow rice

I've been using Vigo Yellow Rice in my kitchen for a few years now and my kids and husband always get excited when they see what I have planned! The blend of seasonings in this rice is just delicious. It's a Spanish classic complete with saffron - one of the world's most expensive spices. Just to give you an idea, it takes 75,000 flowers to make just one lb of saffron! I just love how Vigo Yellow Rice can be made into a simple meal by just adding chicken, pork, or seafood - just like in these stuffed peppers. You simply can't be under 25 minutes from stove to table as well!
