These are delicious and simple to make. I like to use red and yellow peppers as well as the green for added color and flavor. These are my husband's favorite.
- 6 green peppers (you can use red or yellow too)
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 cup cooked MINUTE rice
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon minced onion
- 1 (8 ounce) packagesliced button mushrooms
- 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 8 cups water
- preheat oven to 350 degrees and in a large pot start the water to boil.
- Cut off the tops of the peppers, remove seeds and wash thoroughly. When water is boiling put peppers in for five minutes to soften.
- Remove peppers and set aside. Turn them upside down so excess water drains out.
- Cook the beef, salt, pepper, garlic and minced onions together.
- When browned add the rice, mushrooms, and half of the tomato sauce.
- Mix well and let sit for about 2-3 minutes to develop the flavor.
- Place peppers in a large casserole dish or you can use a 9 x 13 pan. Fill each pepper with the beef mixture until they are all full. If there is any left you can use it around the bases of the peppers to support them.
- Then pour the remaining tomato sauce on top of each pepper.
- Cover with lid or aluminum foil tent, and Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
- Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top of each pepper and bake for another 15 minutes.
While making the stuffed peppers, I thought it would need more seasoning. But I didn't add something. I followed the recipe. And tonight this is what we ate and the taste is so good. The flavor blended together. I used red bell pepper. Thanks lilypad :) Made for Cookbook tag game

This is the first time I have made or eaten stuffed peppers and they were really good. I made 1/2 the recipe and fit it in two larger peppers (yellow and orange). I would add a little more garlic and some onions next time and did salt and pepper the mixture before putting it in the peppers. Made for Fall 2012 PAC.
