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

Step-by-Step

  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.
  11. This is the jar of Red Pepper Ancho Chili Jam from Earth & Vine.
