STUFFED BELL PEPPERS

These stuffed bell peppers are filled with a mixture of ground beef, tomato sauce and rice, then topped with cheese and baked to perfection. A classic dish that’s comfort food at its finest!

I love to prepare stuffed veggies such as stuffed zucchini, stuffed cabbage and these fabulously delicious stuffed peppers. My family requests this recipe time and time again, it’s just that good.

Stuffed bell peppers have been popular for many years for good reason – they’re totally delicious! My version features a hearty beef and rice mixture with plenty of melted cheese. Serve your stuffed peppers as-is, or add a side salad for a meal that your family will be sure to love.

HOW DO YOU MAKE STUFFED BELL PEPPERS?

Prepare the bell peppers by slicing off the tops and removing the seeds. Bake the empty peppers to soften them up before you add the filling. The filling for these peppers is a mixture of ground beef, tomato sauce, rice and cheese. After the peppers have softened, they’re filled with the stuffing and a layer of cheese goes over the top. Bake your peppers until they’re completely tender, then add a sprinkling of parsley and serve.

TIPS FOR STUFFED PEPPERS:

Look for bell peppers that are about the same size to make sure that each of the peppers takes the same amount of time to cook.
If a pepper does not stand up on its own, cut a thin slice off of the bottom of the pepper to make the bottom level.
Feel free to use different colored bell peppers. The cooking process is the same for each of the colors and the dish will be more vibrant.

DO PEPPERS NEED TO BE COOKED BEFORE THEY’RE STUFFED?

Peppers need to be cooked before they are stuffed to ensure they are tender. If you want a crispier pepper you can omit the par-baking step.

Ingredients:

6 bell peppers any color, or a combination of colors
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 1/2 pounds ground beef I use 90% lean
1/2 cup onion finely chopped
