"I have been using this recipe that I found in the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook since I found it in 1971. It is the best stuffed pepper recipe there is. Boyfriends and husband loved it! Gave the recipe to a friend who made it for a crowd of high school lacrosse players and they raved!! Personally, I use a bit more worchestershire sauce, cheddar cheese and stewed tomatoes instead of plain. A wonderful family style recipe. Love the tri-color peppers. "
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.

organikagurl 1y agoMy husband was skeptical at first but the finished product was amazing. Definitely the best stuffed peppers I've ever had!!
susieq_64 1y agoThis 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.
rab143 2y agoWell 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!!
Steph6878 2y agoI 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! :-)
MauraSpeckt 2y agoNot very good, I rarely use processed cheese and it definitely didn't taste good with the rice. Not to make again.
LaurieC1011 2y agoBest peppers I've ever had! So different from when my mom used to make, this is a one pot meal-amazing!
margarethumphreys58 2y agoOh 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.
