Ground Beef Stuffed Green Bell Peppers With Cheese

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Cindy Hartlin

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.

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 !!!!
