How to Make Southwestern Stuffed Bell Peppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine beef, onion, seasoning mix and egg in a large bowl. Add rice
    and mix well
  2. Cut peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and
    membrane.
  3. Spread tomatoes on the bottom of an ovenproof 12 X 9 inch
    baking dish.
  4. The liquid from the tomatoes will reduce during cooking,
    so add about a cup of water. This also helps make the peppers softer.
  5. Place peppers, cut side up, on top of the tomatoes. Spoon beef mixture
    into peppers, mounding as necessary. Top each pepper with salsa. Bake
    in preheated 375F oven for 40-45 minutes or until beef is cooked
    thoroughly and peppers are soft.
  6. Cover each pepper with cheese and return to oven, under the broiler,
    until the cheese melts; less than a minute. Serve with sour cream and
    additional salsa.
