Not every holiday feast has to be a formal affair. What’s important is sitting around the table, spending time with your family and eating a delicious, warm meal. For a worry-free dinner, give this recipe for stuffed Christmas bell peppers a try.

The peppers are stuffed with rice, tomatoes, onions and black beans, and topped with melted cheese and a sprinkle of cilantro. It’s an incredibly comforting meal that doesn’t take a whole lot of work. However, if you want to save time, you can make them in advance and keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to put them in the oven. We also use Ready Rice to speed up the process — and order our groceries using Walmart+.

A Walmart+ membership includes free delivery from your store on orders over $35 (some restrictions may apply), including delivery as fast as same day. Use it to get groceries, cooking tools and more on your shopping list delivered from Walmart when you need them. You can sign up for a Walmart+ 15-day free trial and after that, it’s only $98 per year (or $12.95 per month). 

Whether you’re making our stuffed Christmas bell peppers or need a last-minute baked good for a holiday gathering, save yourself the hour you’d use to run to the store. Instead, spend that quality time with your family and let Walmart deliver.
