Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Stuffed anything is good right? Stuffed noodles, stuffed chicken, and now you can add stuffed peppers to your list. Here is a tasty recipe for some Stuffed Bell Peppers. All you is...

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 green bell peppers
  • 2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 2 TBS of BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • salt & pepper to taste
As a side note - I like to add more rice and less beef, as about 1cup rice and 1/2 beef, I also add a small onion and mix in some shredded cheese of my choice.

1. Heat oven to 350* degrees
2. Cook the rice in rice cooker or pot. In pan, start cooking the beef.
3. Remove the tops and seeds of peppers. Cut of a bit of the bottom if you are having a hard time keeping the peppers up right.
4. In a bowl mix beef, cooked rice, 1 can tomato sauce, bbq sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper (onion & cheese also, if you are adding those). Spoon an equal amount of the mixture into each hollowed pepper.
5 Mix the remaining tomato sauce and Italian seasoning in a bowl and pour over the stuffed peppers.
6. Bake 1 hour, if you want to baste the peppers with tomato sauce they will come out more tender. Do this about every 15 mins... I don't usually do this and they still turn out good.
