How to Make Bell Peppers Melanie


  1. Expand your bulger by adding equal parts water and bulger. I used 1/2 cup of each. Set aside in a bowl for about 30 minutes or so until the bulger has absorbed the water.
  2. Scramble cook ground beef, carrots, onion, 1/4 bell pepper, and baby bellas.

    Easily make this vegan by replacing the ground beef with a can or two of any type of rinsed bean.
  3. Add the expanded bulger, fire roasted tomatoes and seasonings.
  4. Cut the tops off your whole bell peppers and stuff. I crumpled foil in the bottom of my pan to help the peppers stay upright. Bake for about 30-40 minutes at 350.
