6 fresh garlic cloves
1/2 cup stuffed green olives
8 oz fresh chorizo (1 link)
1 1/2 lb ground meatloaf blend (beef)
1/2 cup pre-diced onions
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1 (8.8-ounce) pouch pre-cooked original long grain rice
2 tablespoons sofrito (Spanish cooking sauce)
1 (8-ounce) can Spanish tomato sauce

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Cut peppers in half (remove seeds and membranes); arrange peppers in baking dish with cut side up. Chop garlic finely; coarsely chop olives. Cut chorizo in half lengthwise; chop finely (wash hands).
2. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Place garlic, olives, chorizo, meatloaf, onions, and raisins in pan; cook 3–4 minutes, stirring often, or until onions are softened and meat is lightly browned. Remove from heat; stir in cumin and pepper.

4. Remove foil; bake 5–7 more minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°F. Use a meat thermometer to accurately ensure doneness. Serve. (Makes 6 servings.)

Aprons Advice

Don't heat the pre-cooked rice before filling the peppers. The rice will be perfectly cooked and will absorb the juices and flavors from the meat during the bake time.
