My family LOVES stuffed peppers and the best thing is you can make them out of basically whatever you have on hand! BUT THESE, these are the go to Peppers in our house 😍 You will not be disappointed!
6 large Bell Peppers ( I prefer a mix of orange, red and green)
1 lb Ground beef (I use elk or venison)
1⁄2 cup onion, Chopped
1/2 can tomato paste
3 fresh tomatoes, diced
1 cup rice of your choice (I prefer brown or jasmine) **Busy mom tip: I cook my rice in the instant pot the day before
1 cup water (for cooking rice)
1 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup Mexican cheese blend, Shredded
Cut off the tops of peppers; discard seeds and membranes, chop peppers in half length wise.
Cook the whole green peppers, uncovered in boiling water for about 5 minutes; invert to drain well.
*in a separate pot put water bring to boil add rice cook until rice is soft – unless using precooked rice like I do.
In a skillet cook ground beef, onion till meat is browned and onions are tender.
Add tomatoes, paste, salt, garlic powder, Worcestershire, and rice.
if needed add more water.
add rice to beef mixture.
Stir in cheese. Stuff peppers with meat/rice mixture. Place in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet lined with foil.
Bake, covered in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. in the last 5 minutes add any remaining cheese to the top of the peppers.
And ENJOY! Because these are amazing!!!
