I need help with dinner!

Okay guys I have a lot of red, orange, yellow, and green bell peppers, yellow onions and chives, and mushrooms left over from when I made stir-fry. Other than making more stir-fry or kabobs, what can I make?!?

    Stuffed Pepper Soup. This is Cooking Light - yum!

    Ingredients
    1/2 pound ground round (or turkey)
    2 cups chopped green bell pepper (a mixture is good)
    1 cup chopped onion
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1 (14-ounce) can less-sodium beef broth
    1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
    1 (10 3/4-ounce) can tomato soup, undiluted - I use Amy's or Progresso (less sugar than Campbell's!)
    1 1/2 cups hot cooked white rice (or brown rice)

    Basil is a nice addition too.

    Preparation
    Heat a small Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add beef; cook 3 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Add chopped green bell pepper and onion; cook 8 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in black pepper, less-sodium beef broth, diced tomatoes, and tomato soup; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes.
    Spoon 1/4 cup hot cooked white rice into each of 6 bowls; top with 1 cup soup.

    Stuffed peppers! We had a ton of bell peppers left over from a BBQ once so I made a filling and we had stuffed peppers sprinkled with low-fat cheese. You can mix rice with extra lean ground beef & tomatoes as a filling.. that's the most common I think. But there are a ton of recipes online if you'd like to do the filling differently! They're very yummy :)

    I always keep peppers and onions in the fridge bc I throw them in my salad (I have a salad every night with dinner and sometimes lunch IS a salad). You can also throw them in omlets or just sautee them as a side. I use peppers and onions on tacos too. Or in wraps. Or put them on top of grilled chicken and melt a little cheese over for a dinner idea. Trow them in rice. Pasta salad....
