Stuffed Peppers Preparation
. Begin by washing peppers and splitting in half. Remove all seeds as they
are bitter, and remove any white areas on the interior. Par boil by putting
the peppers into boiling water for about 5-7minutes, to begin the cooking
process and soften the peppers.
2. Brown ground beef or turkey until thoroughly cooked, drain. Return to
burner and add chopped onion, cook until transparent. Combine rice, corn,
Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce and salt and pepper. Remember, you can
omit or add other ingredients to customize. For instance, if you or your
family doesn?t like corn, add green beans or lima beans.
3. Stuff each pepper half with the rice and beef mixture. Place in a baking
dish. Top with a light sprinkle of cheese and cover loosely with foil. Bake
for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove foil, add remaining cheese, and cook
for an additional 10 minutes.
