Three Guys From Miami: Cuban and Spanish Food Recipes

Glenn Lindgren: Stuffed peppers are a traditional entrée in many cuisines. My mother used to make Mexican-style stuffed peppers with rice when I was growing up.

Jorge Castillo: This recipe has a more intense meat flavor than the recipe you remember. The wine gives the dish a very nice flavor.

Glenn Lindgren: Sorry mom, but I like this one a lot better!
