Stuffed Bell Peppers, The Forgotten Meal..
Well, at least around here it had been forgotten! Still suffering from Sam's Club overload, where I bought a six- pack of bell peppers for my chili, I had three left..
Orange, yellow, and red, they were large, fresh and attractive. For filling, I used white rice, simmered in tomato juice until absorbed and tender. I browned ground beef with a chopped onion, and other seasonings until done. Mixing the two into a filling, they were placed in the hollowed out peppers and baked for about 60 minutes at 325F- basting the top every 20 minutes with extra tomato juice to keep moist. When done, they were sprinkled with cheese and served.
A pleasant change for us- but maybe you have them a lot!
