Bell peppers have a Southwestern flair when stuffed with rice, black beans, and vegetables such as corn, carrot, and leek. Diced poblano peppers (which, like bells, are members of the Capsicum family) spice up the filling, along with cumin, turmeric, and paprika.
We talk a lot of turkey this time of year, but really, aren’t we all most excited about the stuffing, the green beans, and the piece de resistance -- Grandma’s sweet-potato pie? This Thanksgiving, we looked beyond our regional comfort zones to find favorite side-dish and pie recipes from around the country. Rich in both culinary history and a sense of place, they reflect America’s greatest resource: diversity.
