DIRECTIONS

  • In a large lidded skillet, brown the hamburger with the Rice-a-Roni (set aside the seasoning packet), onion, garlic and one of the bell peppers (diced), until the hamburger is no longer pink and the onions are clear.
  • Drain well.
  • Put hamburger mixture back in the pan and add the tomatoes with mild chilis.
  • In a large measuring cup, combine 2 1/2 cups hot water with the seasoning packet from the Rice-A-Roni and whisk together.
  • Stir the water into the mixture in the skillet and bring to a boil.
  • Reduced heat to medium low and cover.
  • Cook 20 minutes, stirring once after 15 minutes.
  • While this is cooking, prepare the other 6 peppers by cutting off the tops, removing the seeds, and rinsing the the insides (and outside too).
  • Arrange peppers in a shallow microwave safe baking dish.
  • When the meat mixture is done, fill each of the peppers with the meat/Rice-A-Roni mixture and top with 2 T of shredded cheese. (If you have extra of the meat mixture, just spoon it around the peppers.).
  • Microwave for 5-10 minutes and serve.
