"The Three Amigos"- 12x12, oil, plus a recipe for Stuffed Peppers!, green peppers, yellow peppers, red peppers, paintings of food, vegetables, organic vegetables

"The Three Amigos"- 12x12, oil on wrapped canvas- (Note: the sides are painted to match the scene.)

This is an oldie but a goodie.Three old friends nestled together and enjoying each others company before they get sliced or diced!

I made a pot of my classic Stuff Pepper Stew last night and I guess that is what made me think of this painting, which was a done a few years back.

The recipe for the stew is very simple. Just take a dutch oven and add three cans of tomato soup. Then fill the pan to about half way up the pot with water. Next, take three peppers (I used green) and cut of the tops and remove the seeds and core from the inside. Then take a pound of lean ground beef and put it in a bowl .Add half a cup of brown rice and half a cup of water to the beef and salt and pepper to taste. Mix with your hands and then stuff the mixture into the peppers. Bring the soup and water to a boil and then immediately turn the heat down to simmer. Add the peppers and simmer for about 4 hours till the mixture is very thick. Serve with mashed potatoes and peas and you'll have a meal of old fashioned comfort food!
