Cheesy Stuffed Bell Peppers

Janice Ross


I'm the only person in my house that love stuffed bell peppers. My grown son and his wife like them and some of my friends. However, I don't make them a lot but when I do love them. They normally aren't that pretty but oh so tasty!The pictures I'm showing is just one that was left over after I sent the casserole dish with three others to my daughter in law.

How to Make Cheesy Stuffed Bell Peppers


  1. Follow the directions on the rice mix. The Spanish rice mix I did not use but a 4 tablespoons of the diced tomatoes when making the rice. I made sure that the rice was tender though before I mixed it with the meat. Do not mix it with the meat until after the meat is done. Set the rice aside.
  2. In a skillet cook meat, onions, celery and seasonings until vegetables are tender and meat is not pink. Make sure you chopped the meat into small pieces. Drain. Use a cup plus of rice and mix with meat. It is ready to be stuffed in the prepared clean bell peppers.Place the bell peppers in a greased casserole dish. Pour the tomato sauce over stuffed bell peppers. Cover with foil. Bake on 375 degrees until the bell peppers are fairly soft.
  3. Remove foil and top each one with a cheese slice. Return to oven until cheese has melted. This is great warmed over the next day!
