It has all the basic ingredients for a yummy one dish meal the whole family will love!
I think it can be customized such as serve all meat and vegetable ingredients over the rice instead of mixed with it. Use hashbrowns or diced potatoes in place of the rice or add additional vegetables if you desire. It's so versatile!

How to Make Stuffed Green Pepper Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9 x 13" glass or metal baking dish with aluminum foil. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet or stockpot, brown ground beef. drain if needed depending on the type of meat you are using.
  3. Add garlic pepper seasoning, onions and green peppers to meat and saute until veggies are just tender.
  4. While meat, peppers and onions are cooking, prepare the 2 1/2 cups rice. I used Microwave and it took about 5 minutes to cook and set for 4 minutes.
  5. When rice is done, add canned ingredients to meat mixture and slowly mix in rice to thoroughly combine ingredients.
  6. Pour mixture into the baking dish and flatten to even. Put in oven on next to bottom rack position and bake for 30 minutes.
  7. After 30 minutes, remove from oven and top with cheese. Return to oven and cook for an additional 5 to 10 minutes until cheese is fully melted, a little longer if you wish to have crustier cheese.
  8. Remove from oven. Let sit for about 5 minutes and serve. My family loved it!
