Stuffed Bell Peppers


I found the most beautiful bell peppers at the grocery store this weekend.  Their colors were bright and not a blemish could be found on their taught skin.  I HAD to buy them and make these delicious stuffed peppers. 

My friend gave me this recipe a few months ago and I will never make "boring" stuffed peppers again.  It's a simple recipe and easy to throw together.  I have prepared these the night before and all I needed to do was put them inside a preheated oven the next day.  My friend parboils her peppers for 3 minutes to reduce cooking time and bakes hers for 20-25 minutes.

The spicy tomatoes and cheese make this recipe unforgettable!  My family enjoys them served with sweet corn and a salad. 
 



If you are in the mood for stuffed peppers, here are the ingredients you will need:

  • 6 bell peppers
  • 2 pounds browned hamburger
  • 1 prepared box of Spanish Rice Rice-A-Roni (or a substitute brand)
  • 1 can Ro-Tel Tomatoes or a can of tomatoes with chilies
  • Mozzarella or Swiss cheese

Here are the cooking and baking directions:

Wash and dry your peppers. 

Cut them in half and remove the stems and seeds.



Place the halves in a greased baking sheet.



Prepare the filling by mixing your browned hamburger, prepared Spanish rice, and tomatoes.

Scoop the filling into the pepper shells and mound a little on the top. 



Pour a small amount of water in the bottom of the baking dish and cover.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about an hour.



Add slices of Swiss or mozzarella cheese on top of the peppers and bake, uncovered for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and a little browned.

Remove from the oven and let sit for about 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
