It’s Friday! And that means the weekend is here at last! The recipe for today is stuffed green peppers. This is a recipe my mom gave to me; she would make it periodically growing up and it had such good flavors, I wanted to replicate it as well. The hubs loved it the first time he had it and so it became a permanent resident in my recipe book.
The recipe itself is pretty basic. You take the peppers, wash them, core them, stuff them, and cook them. The end.
For my vegetarian friends, beans and/or cheese can be used. And for those that just don’t eat beef, ground turkey can be substituted. It’s a pretty flexible recipe so you really can’t go wrong. I’ve seen several different versions floating around the internet: some cook the meat before stuffing, some add Mexican spices, some use beans, the list goes on. This recipe just calls for rice, beef, and tomato sauce. Simple – just the way I like 🙂
*Note the tomato sauce on the bottom of the pan (prevents peppers from burning on the bottom)
About 45 minutes later, the peppers are ready to be eaten!
Have you ever had stuffed peppers? Do you make them and if so, what do you stuff them with?
