Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Add countless twists to this already-flavorful dish when you top with shredded coconut, chopped fresh cilantro, Thai basil leaves or peanuts.
  • tip 2
    No need to let the other half of the green bell pepper go to waste. Slice it into strips or rings, and use to top sandwiches.
