- 1⁄2 cup sour cream

- 1⁄2 cup chopped green onion
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 cup hot water
- Cut the peppers in half lengthwise, leaving the stems and halving them also.
- Remove the seeds and ribs.
- Saute the beef and pork, the onion, garlic, 1 teaspoon of the bouillon granules, and the salt together, crumbling well, until the onion is transparent.
- Drain off the fat.
- Add the rice, cheese, sour cream, tomatoes, green onions and soy sauce.

- Stuff this mixture into peppers.
- Mix the hot water and the remaining 1 tsp bouillon granules.
- Pour this into a shallow casserole large enough to hold all the peppers.
- Place the stuffed peppers in the dish.

- Cover the casserole with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes.
- Remove the foil and spoon a little juice over the peppers; bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.
I made these last night and I was very very pleased. I used green peppers, as they aren't as sweet as red. I omitted the green onion. I used cheese with mild salsa, but might use medium next time. At the end, I sprinkled some cheddar cheese on top and popped back in the oven for 3 min, just so they wouldn't look so naked. Very, very, VERY good!
I made these after I saw them on the Paula Deen show except I used green peppers and all beef. They are the most wonderful stuffed peppers I've ever tasted! Even my granddaughter likeds them and she HATES stuffed peppers. Great recipe..try it, you'll love em!
Simply wonderful. A great combination of flavors, easy to make and even easier to eat!
