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

Step-By-Step

1Combine beef, onion, seasoning mix and egg in a large bowl. Add rice
and mix well
2Cut peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and
membrane.
3Spread tomatoes on the bottom of an ovenproof 12 X 9 inch
baking dish.
4The liquid from the tomatoes will reduce during cooking,
so add about a cup of water. This also helps make the peppers softer.
5Place 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.
6Cover 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.
