Serves 2

Letcho is a popular Hungarian dish, typically made with green bells and Hungarian sausage. I made this in a small casserole dish, using our Lunchbox Peppers.


1/2 cup uncooked Rice

1 cup Water or Chicken Stock

1 tsp Salt

1/2 box Lunchbox Peppers, tops removed and chopped

1/4 lb Tomatoes, Shady Lady or Roma, roughly chopped

1/2 Onion, sliced thin

3 oz flavorful Sausage meat, if you have access to a good Hungarian Kolbasz great, if not use something like Chorizo



Cook the sausage meat with the sliced onion.  If you need it, add a little oil to the pan.  If you don’t have a small covered casserole dish you could also use a small sauce pot that is oven proof, as long as it has a well fitting lid.  In the casserole add the uncooked rice, then the water and the salt.  Next, add the onion and sausage meat, then top with lunchbox peppers and tomato.  Sprinkle a little paprika over the top, put the lid on, and bake in an oven preheated to 350 for 45 minutes.  Check to make sure the rice is cooked, give it another couple of minutes if needed.
