It’s getting to be that time of year again. Every Fall we are rewarded with the bright colors and flavors of the bell pepper harvest. And of course, a bell pepper can only be made better by stuffing it with a mound of tasty morsels! There are so many ways to prepare stuffed peppers. This is our lazy way.
Start by hollowing out your peppers and boiling them in a bit of water to steam them for a few minutes while you chop and prepare everything else.
Mix all of your ingredients in a bowl and loosely stuff each pepper to the brim. Bake until the meat is cooked through.
Finish these by broiling cheese on the tops and eating them with a bit of ketchup (if you’re into that sort of thing …think meatloaf people!). You can also cut each cooked pepper lengthwise, lay them flat, filling-side up, and add the cheese at that point. You’ll get more cheesy surface area that way. Again, we were feeling lazy and didn’t bother this time around.
Try a healthier version of this recipe by substituting millet or quinoa for the rice or ground turkey for the ground beef. For a vegetarian option, and cooked mushrooms and/or pinto beans and corn instead of meat.
