Stuffed peppers are delicious and very easy to make! The recipe I use is based off the recipe found here. I found this recipe a few years ago, and have been using it to make stuffed peppers ever since. I even made them back in my ramen eating days, before my new year’s resolution, so you can tell it’s a really simple recipe.
1 Bell Pepper (I like green, but I’ve used other colors and they are all great)
1/4 C Spaghetti sauce
1/3C Cooked White Rice
1/3 C Cooked Ground Beef
½ C Cheese (The original recipe only used cheese to cover the top, but I like cheese a lot! If you aren’t a big cheese fan you can use more sauce, rice, or beef)
1. Preheat oven to 350°
1. Cut pepper in half lengthwise and cut out the stem and seeds (Or you can just cut off the top, but it’s a lot easier to eat if you cut it in half).
2. Parboil the pepper
3. Heat the sauce on low for a minute. Then add the beef, rice, and seasoning. Mix together and heat for another 1-2 minutes.
4. Stuff the pepper halves, layering the beef/rice mixture and the cheese (Depending on the size of the pepper you might need to use more or less cheese)
5. Place peppers in a small baking dish and bake covered at 350° for 35 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese, and bake another 5-10 minutes.
