Ground Beef Stuffed Green Bell Peppers With Cheese

We had these not too long ago and we both decided that they needed a little more seasoning. We put a little hot pepper sauce on them and they were much better. I would probably include 2 teaspoons in the meat mix the next time that I make them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut tops from green peppers; discard seeds and membranes.
  2. Chop enough of the tops to make 1/4 cup, set aside.
  3. Cook the whole green peppers, uncovered in boiling water for about 5 minutes; invert to drain well.
  4. Sprinkle insides of peppers lightly with salt. In a skillet cook ground beef, onion and 1/4 cup chopped pepper till meat is browned and vegetables are tender.
  5. Drain off excess fat. Add undrained tomatoes, uncooked rice, water, salt, Worcestershire, and a dash of pepper.
  6. Bring to boiling, reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes or till rice is tender.
  7. Stir in cheese. Stuff peppers with meat mixture. Place in a 10x6x2 baking dish.
  8. Bake, covered in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Loved the recipe, but had to change up a bit. Next time I will pre-cook rice, (rice was not thoroughly cooked), and add corn. I added 8-oz. tomato sauce, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp. onion powder, 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, 1 tsp. sugar, 3 tsp. of worcestershire sauce, topped with Italian bread crumbs. Yum !!!!

These were quite easy to make and the coloured peppers looked lovely on our plates. I needed to use a bit more water than shown on the recipe, to cook the rice, but just kept adding more until it was tender. For a bit of spice, I added some chopped chillies as well as some fresh rosemary from our garden.

I added spicy rotel in place of the diced tomatoes. I also added some chopped jalapenos and a few tsp of hot sauce. We like things spicy around here.
