Corn Stuffed Peppers

      Sometimes you're just in the mood for a four ingredient recipe.  With these Corn Stuffed Peppers, Stouffers has gone ahead and done all the work for you.  I apologize to those of you who can't find their brand of frozen Corn Souffle in your local grocery store, I really don't know what you could use as a substitution.  Definitely a good camping recipe, if you don't have refrigeration, you can defrost the souffle overnight in your cooler.  In my 10 inch oven, it did take a good hour to cook with 22 coals on the lid and 10 around the base of the oven.  Believe it or not, the souffle does actually rise leaving a light and fluffy filling, just be sure to leave enough space between the peppers and the lid of your dutch oven.  Hard to believe something this simple could be so elegant, also you can easily double or triple the recipe if you're feeding a crowd.

  1. Great recipe! I wonder how a little jalapeno would be chopped up in the corn souffle?

  2. Now that would give them a kick or maybe a small can of chopped green chilies, great idea Becky! Liddy
