I found a great deal on bell peppers and wanted to try a new approach to my stuffed peppers instead of using ricotta and spinach. This is really a great dish and very easily put together!

How to Make Mexican-Style Stuffed Peppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Season beef with salt and pepper, to taste. Using a medium skillet, brown beef and onion over medium heat until no longer pink. While beef is browning, bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan and add the rice. Give it a good stir, cover and cook per package directions (usually about 5 minutes).
