Love Me Two Times, One for Tomorrow, One Just for Today

I love double duty ingredients.  I made a batch of this ground chicken and vegetable mix and took half of it the next day after making burgers and stuffed these bell peppers.  Those would also begat leftover meals. It's a beautiful thing.  All your groceries working together in harmony.  All holding hands, forming friendships and having baby meals.
A deep flavored dish becomes half as time consuming if you already have a great base to build it off of, like this meat mixture.   A quick stuff, some canned tomatoes over top and into the oven for 40-45 minutes.  Enough time to get some brown rice made.  More leftover fresh pico on top to finish.  This had the eye appeal and wow factor because anything stuffed is appetizing and makes your mind think 'mmmmm...stuffed hot something'........

...yes that is puffed rice on top for crunch.  Try it!
