I love stuffed pepper's. Never was brave to make them. Always thought they would be hard to make. But I was so wrong. It was so simple. And so good. I am no longer afraid to make them. My husband is still talking about how good they are.
I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website.
- 8 medium green peppers
- 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
- 1-1/2 cups water
- 1 envelope (5.4 ounces) Mexican-style rice and pasta mix
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend
- Cut tops off peppers and remove seeds. In a Dutch oven, cook peppers in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water; set aside. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the diced tomatoes, water and pasta mix. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 6-8 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Place 1/3 cup rice mixture in each pepper; sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons cheese. Top with remaining rice mixture. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Cover and bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted and peppers are tender.
