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.



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.



Then top with the extra cheddar cheese.


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.


Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  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.
