My girls love raw peppers, but once they are cooked, that's another story! With this recipe, they feast on the cooked peppers as well. In that case, serve with a fresh green salad and that's it!

Easy Stuffed Peppers

I love stuffed peppers and this? THIS is my favorite easy stuffed pepper recipe because the peppers are still crunchy and crisp.

I love stuffed peppers. I remember the occasional time my mom would make them. I loved them. Except for the pepper part. I love peppers, but soft cooked peppers were never my favorite. That’s why I make this easy stuffed pepper recipe with fresh uncooked peppers. When dinner is served those pepper shells still have that fresh crunch and flavor I love so much. If you don’t love your stuffed peppers with quite so much crunch, you can put them in boiling water for just a few minutes to soften them. At that point they are also fairly easy to peel if you want.

Even though my husband isn’t a huge fan of green peppers cooked or raw, he loves what comes inside the pepper – that mixture of nutty brown rice, ground meat, and sauce, covered in mozzarella (or cheddar) cheese. I always make sure there are extras for his lunch the next day – without the pepper.

I love to use brown rice in this recipe because it is heartier and holds up nicer. Plus no one notices it’s brown rice. I also like to double the rice to make another meal time easier. In fact, I often plan meals together this way. Guess what’s for lunch tomorrow!

How to Make Stuffed Bell Peppers

  1. The first step in this recipe is to cook the rice. Add half a cup of long-grain white rice and a cup of water to a saucepan. Cook the rice over high heat until it boils. Reduce to low heat and cook for another 20 minutes. You&rsquoll know it&rsquos done once the rice has absorbed all the water.
  2. Next is the beef. Saute 1 pound of ground beef over medium heat until brown. Drain off excess liquid. Set aside.
  3. Now it&rsquos time to prepare the bell peppers. Slice the tops off and remove the membranes and seeds. Place them in a baking sheet, with the hollowed sides up. If they&rsquore lopsided, slice off the bottom so they stand upright.
  4. Step four: Make the filling! In a bowl, combine the cooked rice, browned beef, 1 can of tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, onion and garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  5. Next, fill the peppers with the filling to the brim.
  6. In a bowl, mix together the remaining tomato sauce and Italian seasoning. Pour as a topping
    over the stuffed peppers.
  7. Last, it&rsquos oven time. Bake the peppers at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour. Baste each pepper with sauce every 15 minutes in order to keep it moist.

Easy Peasy Mexican Stuffed Peppers

Ready for a super easy dinner, here’s one for ya! Mexican stuffed peppers. You can use my recipe as a baseline but can really tweak it to your liking or change ingredients to what you have on hand. I’m all about simple and delicious.

First, you’ll want to wash your bell peppers (any color!) and cut the stem off. You need to make a small hole that you’ll you be able to squeeze a spoon into to cram your stuffing into.

If you like sweeter peppers, like I do, you’ll want to grab the colors red, orange or yellow. Green peppers tend to be a bit more sour in my opinion, but still good! All in preference.

You’ll wrap the peppers in aluminum foil, and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. You want to be able to easily pierce the skin with a fork, that’s how you know they’re done. While my peppers are softening in the oven, I start my stuffing mix!

While your peppers are getting hot and happy, you’ll cook your ground beef with a chopped onion. You can also use pork, chicken, turkey… I’ve used it all! Sometimes I’ll even use a rotisserie chicken to make my life even easier (saves about 10 minutes of cook time). And if you’re reading this and aren’t a fan of meet, cut it out and add a little more veg to make your filling.

Once your meat is cooked, add your peas, corn and beans. If you feel like your mixture is a little too dry (like it you’re using turkey for example), feel free to add some butter or oil to get things sizzling!

Next, time to add some taco seasoning. I don’t use any salt or pepper, just simply add taco seasoning. It adds plenty of flavor. If you like things a little spicer, try adding jalapeno or red pepper flakes.

Now, we’re almost done. Here’s where you can add variation to the recipe to make it more you boo boo. Tonight I used cauliflower rice, but I sometimes use white rice, brown rice, and have even used quinoa before! Depends what I have in the pantry and also what I’m in the mood for.

Last, but not least, add your favorite salsa! I add a whole jar, anywhere between 1-2 cups. You can also add a can of tomatos with green chili if you want to make this meal a little more budget friendly. I also like to add a couple cups of cheese to my mix (usually cheddar) and let it melt and get happy. Save a little bit of shredded cheese to top the peppers after they are stuffed!

Okay, we are almost to home base! Now time to stuff the peppers!

Once peppers are stuffed and topped with cheese, into the oven they go at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes!

If you’ve made it this far, your kitchen is probably smelling pretty dang good and you have a healthy, home cooked meal.

Check out this short video of how to make stuffed peppers. You will see how easy it is!

One of the reasons I love this recipe is because it is QUICK and EASY! Stuffing peppers is quite easy, it tends to be easier than stuffing other vegetables because it is not labor intensive.

Because you are using bell peppers, this recipe will be slightly bitter. If you don’t want any bitterness to your meal, I would suggest making stuffed cabbage or stuffing yellow squash instead (recipe to come).

Easy Peasy Recipe – Stuffed Green Peppers

This is a good recipe if you need to stretch your meat ingredient. I made this recipe serving 5 for about $5.95.

Tips – I used 80/20 beef in this recipe, because there isn’t much in each serving. This usually runs around $1.69-$1.99 per lb. If you are a Pennsylvania reader, take advantage of produce junction. The produce is very inexpensive and usually pretty fresh. Otherwise, Aldi’s or a farmers market is a great place to shop for fresh veggies. Please don’t buy this produce at the crazy grocery store prices, it just isn’t worth it. You can find it cheaper and fresher elsewhere!

The Victims

(5) Medium to Large Green Peppers

(1) Box of Spanish Rice ( I used Near East, because it was free, no brand preference)

1 1/2 cups shredded cheese

(1) 12 oz can of tomato sauce ( I have two in the picture, not sure why!)

1. Clean and slice peppers into two as shown above.

2. Prepare Spanish Rice as per package.

3. Boil Green Peppers for approximately 15 minutes or until they become soft. (Not mushy, just soft and pliable)

4. Brown beef and drain off fat.

5. Mix Rice, Beef, Tomato Sauce, and 1 cup cheese together in large bowl. Add oregano, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.

5. Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Stuffed Peppers

These cheesy chicken and broccoli peppers easy enough to make that they’re sure to become a regular in your home!

Chicken, broccoli, and cheese are one of the most classic of pairings. It just works. It works stuffed inside a casserole dish, it works on a pizza… or a sandwich… or even a soup…. and ohmygooooooosh it works stuffed into peppers. In fact it BEGS to be stuffed into peppers.

Tips for Making the Best Stuffed Peppers

1. Leftovers are welcome! This was a dish that came to be as a means of using up leftover everything, so don't be shy! Whatever combination of starches, proteins, sauces, etc., you feel like combining will usually work. We'd recommend white or brown rice, ground beef, tomato sauce, and shredded Mexican blend cheese if you've never made this dish before, as this recipe is a classic, but dare to be bold.

2. Par-cook your peppers. What does par cook mean, you ask? Great question! Par-cooking refers to the technique of partially cooking foods with the intent to cook them the rest of the way later on in the preparation. There are two main reasons for doing this. First, it allows the food to be prepared ahead of time and second, the food can be quickly heated prior to serving.

3. Decide how to use your tops. Some recipes will suggest you keep the tops of your peppers to use as lids, but we'd recomend dicing up your pepper tops and throwing them into your filling mixture. Doing this, you will keep your peppers from overcooking or drying out by allowing moisture to escape.

4. Make ahead. Stuffed peppers can be stuffed and refrigerated up to 1 day in advance. If you choose to prepare them ahead of time, add 10 minutes to your total baking time.

5. Storing your leftovers. Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will keep refrigerated for up to 4 days.
