Southwestern Sweet Pepper Strata: layers of goodness!

Southwestern Sweet Pepper Strata: layers of goodness!

This week we’re going to be making another awesome menu featuring a veggie that is NOT available from local farms in the dead of winter: sweet peppers! We’ll be making our amazingly cheese-tastic-ly delicious Southwestern Sweet Pepper Strata, a fan favorite featuring layers of Mexican-style rice, sauteed peppers, and a creamy cheese topping.  How will we do this without summer vegetables? The answer is that we have a treasure trove of delicious summer veggies like sweet peppers, tomatoes, corn, zucchini, and more in the freezer.  All winter we will be dipping into the freezer for a taste of summer in dishes like this week’s strata and Zucchini Rice Casserole.  It’s still local, just time-delayed! Yum!
