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.

"This 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."

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.

I use a variety of poblanos, pasillas, Anaheim and jalapeño peppers instead of green peppers. I layer instead of stuff.
