I have made this recipe several times now and I have adjusted it to what we like best. The combination of the Ancho Chili Jam and the stuffing mix (instead of rice) really makes for a yummy stuffed pepper. The original recipe is from Earth & Vine website where I buy my Red Bell Pepper & Ancho Chili Jam. It is the best jam and also great just served over a block of cream cheese served with crackers!

How To Make meatloaf stuffed peppers

  • 1
    Wash and slice up your peppers that will be used. I sliced just a little of the pepper off the bottom of two so that they would sit flat on the pan.
  • 2
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together onion, garlic, ½ cup Red Bell Pepper & Ancho Chili Jam and egg.
  • 3
    Add bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • 4
    Add your 3 meat combination or whatever meats you want to use at this time. Mix well again.
  • 5
    Stuff your peppers with the meatloaf and place them in a baking pan.
  • 6
    COVER PEPPERS WITH TINFOIL ---- Bake for 50 - 60 minutes.
  • 7
    Remove pan from oven and spoon the remaining Red Bell Pepper & Ancho Chili Jam to the top of peppers; place back in oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until meat loaves are done.
  • 8
    Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving. I sprinkle just a tad more cheese on top right before serving.
  • 9
    Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or pasta.
  • 10
    Sliced into the pepper so you could see how pretty it is.
