Comfort food at its best. I like to use fresh peppers right out of my garden.

Sorry ladies but I have to laugh at some of the comments here.... Who doesn't know not to cook the ground beef BEFORE putting it in the pepper?! I mean it's like preparing meatballs and just throwing them in the sauce before slightly cooking them.... Rice should always be boiled for 20-25 min before putting it in the peppers....sorry it didn't work for you ladies...just a heads up, I usually use butter in a pan let it melt and throw in the chopped onions and let them sizzle up..after that I then throw in the ground beef and mix it together until brown (being puerto rican I use ADOBO to season the meat, just a few sprinkles makes the meat delicious)-don't forget to dump the excess fat if using ground beef instead of ground round. Just my opinion on how to season the meat before putting it in the pepper....happy cooking!! : )
