My first food post! ♥
I made stuffed green peppers. The recipe I adapted it from was for 8-10 peppers, and as it is just me and Jake I cut it in half for 4-5 so we could each have one and then another one for leftovers sometime. Well there was actually way too much stuffing for just 4 peppers…this recipe is definitely enough for about 6 peppers. (depending slightly on pepper size obviously).
Here is what ingredients you will need:
– Peppers(*helpful tip is to make sure that they are stable enough on the bottom to ‘sit up’ on their own so you don’t have spilling peppers! 🙂
– Small/medium onion
– Can of DICED tomatoes(yes the picture is of stewed tomatoes, thats what the recipe called for, but I had to spend time cutting them into smaller pieces and so next time I’ll be using diced)
– 1 can of corn
– 1 pound of ground beef
– 1 cup of rice
-Chili powder, and I threw in some chipotle powder too
– Cheese to sprinkle on top
What do do:
- Cook your rice and set aside. * Look at the bottom of this post for a rice cooking tutorial 🙂
- Cut the tops off of your peppers and clean. Set aside
- Chop your onion and the tops of the peppers into a small dice
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil and boil the peppers for 3-4 minutes until they softened a little bit (as pictured)
- Take them out and run under cold water for a second or two and then set aside.
- Turn on oven to 350 degrees
- Start browning beef, once brown add the onions and pepper pieces until soft
- Add corn, tomatoes, 1 -2 tsps of chili powder/ chipotle powder or whatever seasoning you choose.
- Add ketchup, about 5 tablespoons-more or less- just to get a ‘stewier’ consistency
- Mix in your rice and stir entire mixture together
Here is what my pepper stuffing looked like after I was done:
- Pack each pepper tightly with the stuffing and place in a tin foil lined baking dish
- Sprinkle the tops with cheese
- Bake for 10-15 minutes (I finished with a broil to get a pretty brown color 🙂 )
This looks so good, I can practically smell it! It doesn’t seem too tricky, either. This is definitely going on my list of things to make… thanks for sharing 🙂

Yo Kiddo! My mouth is watering already??????? Fabulous directions, and great photo shots!!
I would use red peppers and cook them in pasta sause pomodora, really yummy
And parmesan cheese
That sounds so yummy! I am going to try too 🙂 thanks for the suggestion!
I made this last night, it was wonderful!!! I also realized that it had no extra added salt. I passed this along to my parents. My father has kidney problems and is not able to have salt. This would be great for them!!
