Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

45 Min

Ingredients

1 lb
lean ground beef
1/4 c
chopped onion
one pkg
taco seasoning mix
1
egg beaten
2 c
cooked rice
1 can(s)
diced tomatoes --19 oz
16 oz
jar salsa
shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream
4-6
green bell peppers

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine beef, onion, seasoning mix and egg in a large bowl. Add rice
and mix well
2
Cut peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and
membrane.
3
Spread tomatoes on the bottom of an ovenproof 12 X 9 inch
baking dish.
4
The liquid from the tomatoes will reduce during cooking,
so add about a cup of water. This also helps make the peppers softer.
5
Place peppers, cut side up, on top of the tomatoes. Spoon beef mixture
into peppers, mounding as necessary. Top each pepper with salsa. Bake
in preheated 375F oven for 40-45 minutes or until beef is cooked
thoroughly and peppers are soft.
6
Cover each pepper with cheese and return to oven, under the broiler,
until the cheese melts; less than a minute. Serve with sour cream and
additional salsa.
