Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauté onions and garlic in oil until soft.
  2. Meanwhile, cut peppers lengthwise and clean out seeds & membrane.
  3. Add undrained tomatoes, boca crumbles and rice to softened onion mixture. Simmer until well combined. Add ketchup and mustard **NOTE** Add more or less depending on how thick/thin sauce is. It should be just thick enough to remain in peppers. Play with it and add it to taste!

This recipe was great! I accidentally got the Mexican-style tomatoes, and it turned out they gave the recipe even more flavor. Will definitely be making it again!

Wow this was so easy and it was so wonderful. I made this with some fresh from the garden peppers and I cut the recipe down to 2 peppers (what I had). I parboiled the peppers until bright green to cut down on cooking time in the oven. I used canned tomato sauce instead of the tomatoes (8 ounces) and added cumin and cayenne pepper. I didn't have regular mustard so I used Dijon. I also topped these with 2% sharp cheddar cheese and it totally didn't need the cheese, the filling had such a good flavor. Thanks for posting, I will definitely be making this again!

I loved this recipe. My teenage daughter recently decided to go vegetarian so I have been looking for recipes to try. The only changes I made were to add some lawry's seasoning salt and lots of black pepper. I also added some whole kernel corn and used tomato sauce instead of the stewed tomatoes. It turned out excellent. Will be making these again!!!
