Here's one I use all the time from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook: Cut off the tops of 6 medium green peppers; remove seeds and membrane. Precook green pepper cups in boiling salted water about 5 minutes; drain. (For crisp peppers, omit precooking). Sprinkle inside of cups generously with salt. Cook 1 pound ground beef and 1/3 cup chopped onion til meat is lightly browned. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and dash pepper. Add one 1-pound can tomatoes, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup uncooked long-grain rice, and 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce. Cover and simmer til rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in 4 ounces sharp process American cheese, shredded (1 cup). Stuff peppers; stand upright in 10x6x1-1/2 inch baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Serves 6.

Precook green pepper cups in boiling salted water about 5 minutes; drain. (For crisp peppers, omit precooking).

organikagurlMy husband was skeptical at first but the finished product was amazing. Definitely the best stuffed peppers I've ever had!!2y ago
susieq_64This is such a good recipe. So easy to make, yet so tasty. I use my spaghetti sauce instead of canned tomatoes to make a better flavor. My entire family likes them.2y ago
rab143Well I started with 12 peppers and ended with 2!! It was very tasty and everyone seemed to like it. I added tomato sauce around the peppers when placing in the oven. It was very good!!2y ago
Steph6878I have made these several times and they are amazing! I use cheddar cheese and dice the caps to throw in the mixture. I also add garlic and smother with seasoned tomato sauce. I have 5 kids and not only do they all love it, but my 5yr old that usually takes an hour to eat, is the first one done! :-)2y ago
MauraSpecktNot very good, I rarely use processed cheese and it definitely didn't taste good with the rice. Not to make again.3y ago
LaurieC1011Best peppers I've ever had! So different from when my mom used to make, this is a one pot meal-amazing!3y ago
margarethumphreys58Oh man! My mom used to make these when I was little, this is my first attempt they're cooking right now and it smells amazing.3y ago
