How to Make Jack O Lantern Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Place the rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and cook 20 minutes. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the beef until evenly browned.

    In a bowl, mix the browned beef, cooked rice, 1 can tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Spoon an equal amount of the mixture into each hollowed pepper. Mix the remaining tomato sauce and Italian seasoning in a bowl, and pour over the stuffed peppers.

    Wash the peppers, and cut jack-o'-lantern faces into the peppers with a sharp paring knife. Slice off the tops of the peppers, and scoop out the seeds and cores. Stuff the peppers lightly with the beef stuffing, and place them into the prepared baking dish so they lean against each other.

    Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, basting with sauce every 15 minutes, until the peppers are tender.
