Ready In:
1hr 15mins
6 1/2 peppers


  • 3 bell peppers
  • 2 lbs ground beef (approximately 2- 2 1/2 lbs)
  • 12 medium sweet onion (1/2 -1 onion is fine)
  • 1 cup uncooked rice (I used white rice)
  • 3 (10 3/4 ounce) cans campbell's tomato soup
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can water (from used soup can)
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • garlic, to taste


  • Cut and clean 3 bell peppers length wise from stem to butt. Remove seeds and stem and set aside.
  • Mix ground beef, onion, rice, and 1 can of tomato in large glass bowl. Season as desired with salt, pepper, garlic, etc --.
  • Pour 1 can of tomato soup into a deep baking pan and add 1 can of water. Mix together.
  • Fill each pepper 1/2 with ground beef until all the peppers are full and meat mixture is gone. Place each stuffed pepper into pan. Use 1 can of tomato soup to top each pepper.
  • Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 450 degrees for approximately 1 hour or until peppers are soft.
  • ****You can also add cheese or other toppings to the top of the peppers. In addition, if you don't have rice you can use Ritz crackers. Some people like to add an egg to the meat mixture to help the meat stick together. I like to serve these with a side or rice or mashed potatoes. They are even good with noodles. Quick, easy, and very yummy!

I am a mother of three girls and my husband and I are both self employed. I work from home doing payroll and other bookkeeping duties for his construction company. I also operate a licensed daycare and love to plan meals for the kids and my family. I love being a stay at home/work from home mom and feel it is my duty to provide a good meal to my hard working husband who provides the bulk of our income. I feel that food is the ultimate love you can provide for your family and I try to make every meal special. I love any cookbook that provides pictures of the recipe you are cooking, but I tend to get most of my recipes online when I already know what I want to make because they are easy to find and I don't have to spend hours searching for what it is I have in mind. I use my picture cookbooks more for dinner planning and meal ideas. I joined this site when I found a recipe for baked mac/cheese that I liked and would enjoy getting more meal planning ideas. I tend to "get tired of food" and often find myself saying that nothing sounds good! I just need more variety!!
