These sure ain't your Momma's stuffed peppers! We're changing it up big time by adding curry and fragrant garam masala to a hearty beef and Basmati rice filling. Garam masala, a vibrant spice mix of coriander, cinnamon, cardamom, and much more, infuses the filling with a bold Indian flavor profile.
