STUFFED BELL PEPPERS

 


Gather These Ingredients:


6 medium green peppers for a fresh and crisp base

1 lb of ground beef, rich and savory

1 finely chopped onion, adding that perfect crunch

1 box (6 7/8 ounces) of Rice-a-Roni mix, Spanish flavor, for a taste of Spain

1 can (16 ounces) of tomato sauce, rich and tangy

1 teaspoon of sugar to balance the flavors

1 can (14 1/2 ounces) of tomatoes, used in preparing the rice

1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese or American cheese for that gooey topping

Easy Peasy Cooking Steps:


Begin with the Peppers: Cut off the tops and remove the seeds from the peppers. Give them a quick parboil for 5 minutes, then drain.

Prep the Peppers: Place the prepped peppers in a baking dish, ready for stuffing.

Cook the Filling: In a pan, cook the ground beef and onion together until they’re deliciously done. Drain any excess fat and set aside.

Rice, the Heart of the Dish: Follow the package directions to prepare your Rice-A-Roni. Once cooked, mix it with the beef and onion blend. Fill your peppers with this savory mixture.

Sauce It Up: Mix a teaspoon of sugar with the tomato sauce and pour it around the stuffed peppers in the dish (not over them).

Bake to Perfection: Cover your dish and bake at 350°F for 35 minutes. Then, unveil the magic, top with shredded cheese, and bake for another 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Serve and Enjoy: Serve these beauties with the tomato sauce for an extra zing.
