Stuffed Bell Peppers

I grew up eating stuffed peppers and tried several different recipes, but didn’t find one that was just right until I combined a couple of them to create this one.

Ingredients

6-10 Medium to Large Bell Peppers
1/2 cup Water
1 Medium Onion
1 1/2 lbs Ground Beef
2 cans Fire Roasted Tomatoes
2 T Italian Seasoning
2 cups Cooked Brown Rice
2 – 3 cups Shredded Cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place water in the bottom of casserole dish that fits the number of peppers you have. Remove top and seeds from the Bell Peppers. Place upside down in casserole dish.

Microwave for 3 minutes on HIGH. Drain all excess water from casserole dish.

Chop onion into bite size pieces. Brown onion and ground beef together.

Stir in tomatoes and Italian Seasoning.

Stir in rice and 1 cup cheese.

Stuff filling into each pepper.

Bake for 25 minutes. Top each pepper with cheese. Bake additional 5 minutes.

Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
