ELLEN'S MINI STUFFED PEPPERS

I had ordered what I thought was one green bell pepper from my organic delivery company, but what I got was one POUND. I found some ground chuck in the freezer, some rice in the pantry, some leftover tomato juice from making soup last week, and other odds and ends, so I put these delicious mini stuffed peppers together. They are very tasty and easy to make!

Ingredients

  • 3 small
    green bell peppers, seeded
  • 1/2 lb
    ground chuck
  • 1 small
    onion, chopped fine
  • 1 medium
    clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp
    salt or to taste
  • 1 dash(es)
    black pepper
  • 1/2 c
    tomato juice
  • 1 tsp
    worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pkg
    boil-in-bag rice
  • 1/2 c
    sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

How to Make ELLEN'S MINI STUFFED PEPPERS

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium skillet, brown the ground chuck with the onion until beef is no longer pink and onion is transparent.
    Add garlic and continue cooking for 1 minute.
  2. Cook rice as per package directions; drain and place into a medium to large bowl. Add burger mixture to the rice and stir. Add salt, pepper, tomato juice and Worcestershire sauce. Blend thoroughly.
  3. Place green bell peppers upright in a deep baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Carefully fill peppers with burger/rice mixture to the top.
  4. If there is any filling left over, place it into a small baking dish as is and save it for a side dish at another meal.
  5. Place peppers carefully into a preheated 350º oven and bake, uncovered for 50-60 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle cheese over each pepper and bake another five minutes or until cheese is melted.
  6. If you have too much filling with these amounts, add another pepper or two. I happened to have just three. Can also use 1/2 can of chopped tomatoes instead of juice if you prefer.
