Stuffed Peppers

Today I’m sharing my stuffed peppers recipe. It is a simple and tasty recipe that will make your house smell amazing while they bake! My oldest daughter is not a fan of meat but if you spice it up she loves it. This is one of her (and my husband’s) favorite recipes.

Last month I made shamrock prints with bell pepper tops on St. Patrick’s Day with the kids. I just cut off the tops and gave them to the kids with green paint and paper. It was a fun art project, and I saved the pepper bottoms just for this recipe. I made this last month (don’t worry I didn’t save them a month and then make this :)). This is just my first chance to sit and finish this post.

Ingredients:

3 large green bell peppers
1/2 pound or 1 cup ground beef browned
2 cups of cooked rice
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup cheddar cheese plus another 1/2 cup to sprinkle on the tops

When browning the beef I have a quick tip to share about how to discard the grease. Before draining the grease, put tin foil down in your drain. Make it into a little cup to catch all the grease from going down the drain and stopping it up. Put a colander over the tin foil and pour in the browned meat. Carefully lift out the tin foil and put in a mug to cool.

Once totally cool, just fold the grease up in the tin foil and throw away.

Now back to the stuffed peppers! Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl expect the bell peppers and the extra 1/2 cup cheddar for the tops.

This will be what the filling looks like.

Then stuff your peppers with the filling.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 min or until a bit bubbly and the cheese is browned.

They are a big hit in our house! I love how yummy my house smells while they bake also, green pepper goodness.

  1. I love these. I haven’t tried your recipe, but my mom made them for me growing up, and now I make them for my family. The only real differences I see are that I take out a couple of steps by using a boxed Mexican/Spanish rice, and I boil the peppers ahead of time to soften them. From my experience, any stuffed pepper recipe will work in my house.
