The best part of this recipe is that there isn't a need to blanch the peppers. I did that for years and found they come out just as good without doing that and, to me, taste even better; more flavorful. My son-in-law puts in requests for these every once in a while. That quite a compliment. Hope you all enjoy them as much.

How To Make judy's stuffed peppers

  • 1
    Cook the rice and set aside.
  • 2
    Cut off the tops of the green peppers and clean out the insides, removing all membranes and seeds.
  • 3
    Combine all ingredients, except tomato soup, in large mixing bowl. I use my hands so that everything is well combined.
  • 4
    Stuff the mixture into each cleaned out pepper. If you have any left over, you can make meatballs with it.
  • 5
    Pour tomato soup mixture over all the peppers and cover with lid or foil.
  • 6
    Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 1&1/2 hours. Test the bottom of the peppers (the thick part) to be sure they're tender. Let stand about 10 mins before serving.
