Stuffed Bell Peppers offer a hearty but portion controlled main
dish. The peppers are high in vitamins and antioxidants and the brown rice
boost the fiber per serving.
. 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.

Melodie 4y agoI use a variety of poblanos, pasillas, Anaheim and jalapeño peppers instead of green peppers. I layer instead of stuff.
Melodie 5y agoThis was really tasty. I added some ground cumin and oregano to the meat mix and mixed salsa with extra tomato sauce to use as a sauce. Everyone loved it.
