How to Make Southwestern Stuffed Bell Peppers

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine beef, onion, seasoning mix and egg in a large bowl. Add rice
    and mix well
  • 2Cut peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and
    membrane.
  • 3Spread tomatoes on the bottom of an ovenproof 12 X 9 inch
    baking dish.
  • 4The liquid from the tomatoes will reduce during cooking,
    so add about a cup of water. This also helps make the peppers softer.
  • 5Place 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.
  • 6Cover 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.
