How to Make Unstuffed Creamy Stuffed Peppers


  • 1This goes in the oven so try to use a fry pan that is stove top to oven friendly. If not put in a baking dish before step 5.
  • 21. Crumble & Brown ground beef. While beef is browning rough chop peppers, not to fine you want hunks in the dish. Also boil rice – (I used 2 bags of success boil in bag brown rice – it’s quick for this recipe)
  • 32. Once ground beef is browned (drain if necessary but if using 10% fat there should be no grease) - use med low flame - add the diced peppers and let them get softer but not mushy. Al dente is good. Add black pepper, garlic powder, sea salt and Italian seasoning. Stir together.
  • 43. While peppers are softening drain rice, then add to ground beef mixture, mix together
  • 54. Next add marinara sauce and sour cream to mixture. Mix together. Take off the stove and sprinkle with the shredded Swiss cheese – coat well – (if you don’t like Swiss use another but try to keep it mild)
  • 65. Put in 400 degree oven top rack for 20- 25 minutes or until cheese browns a bit.
