Stuffed Peppers

Got this recipe from my good friend Betty. Maybe you've heard of her.... Betty Crocker. :)
These are so good and so filling. Love em!
BTW, this was taken before put int the oven.

  • 6 large bell peppers, any color
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 Tbs chopped onion
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can (15ounces) tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1-Cut top off stem end of pepper. Remove seeds and membranes, rinse peppers. Cook peppers in boiling water (enough to cover pepper) for about 5 minutes. Drain.

2- Cook beef and onion in skillet over medium heat, 8-10 min, until beef is brown. Drain. Stir in rice, salt, garlic, and 1 cup of the tomato sauce. Cook until hot.

3- Heat oven to 350 degrees.

4- Stuff peppers with mixture. Stand peppers upright in baking dish. Pour remaining tomato sauce over peppers.

5- Cover and bake 45 min. Uncover and bake about 15 min longer, or until peppers are tender. Sprinkle with chesse.


**For a lighter pepper, use ground turkey instead of beef, and reduced-fat cheese.**
with Ground beef = 290 cal
with Turkey = 190 cal
