Mom use to make these when I was growing up and we loved them. But then, I love bell peppers! These are easy to make.
The grandkids don't like bell peppers but love they the stuffing.

How to Make Spanish Stuffed Peppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat Oven 325
  2. Cook the Rice A Roni and another handful of rice (quick cooking) and the tsp. of Taco seasoning. Cook according to package directions. When done put into bowl, add the Rotel and save an empty can, in same pan cook ground meat till done then mix with Rice-A-Roni,
  3. Clean and cut tops out of peppers and take out membrane and seeds. Spray Pam in baking dish. Place peppers into appropriate size baking dish, they can all be touching.
  4. Fill peppers with Rice-A-Roni mixture and spread the rest around the peppers. With the empty can fill with water and pour over peppers and around sides to keep peppers and rice moist and to keep from burning the bottoms. Take a fork and mix water in a little around peppers and just run fork down the rice mix inside the peppers to let the water drain down. If you see a little water remaining on top... Not to worry, the rice will soak it all up and you want it nice and moist.
  5. Place a lid or tin foil tightly on top and bake for one hour. Peppers should be wrinkled and very tender. After peppers are done take off tin foil sprinkle all the cheese on top and with oven off just slip them into oven for a few minutes till cheese is melted.
    Serve
