Picture a Day #274 – Stuffed Peppers!

We were planning on having Sloppy Joes for supper tonight. Then I saw red bell peppers at the market, 4 for a dollar. My husband Sam and I concocted our own recipe (sort of), incorporating both.

Stuffed Peppers, Sloppy Joe Style

8 servings

Prepare 1.5 cups brown rice (cook with desired seasonings-I used fresh basil).

Clean and halve 4 large red bell peppers (could substitute yellow or green bell peppers as well).

Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to 4 quarts of water and bring to a boil. Simmer peppers until tender. Drain and place in a 3 quart glass baking dish, cut side up.

Brown 1.5 pounds of lean ground beef (could substitute other ground meat) in skillet. Drain. Mix with prepared rice and one 15.5 ounce can of Sloppy Joe sauce.

Fill peppers with meat mixture. Top with grated cheese (I used about 3 ounces of cheddar).

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

    I like stuff peppers. Don’t have them very often now because of the price of peppers. Yours looked good. I think we all make up are own recipes and mixing spices and ingredients we enjoy. I like your blog.
