Have you been enjoying this unintentional mini series of Easy Family Favorites? I only do easy cooking, so I thought these recipes might be helpful for any one else looking for some easy recipes! Here’s a favorite that I learned from my MIL, stuffed peppers!
- 3 Bell Peppers (any colors)
- 1 cup rice (uncooked)
- 1 can tomato sauce (8 ounces)
- 1 Pound Ground Beef
- 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasonings
Cook Rice according to directions on package. While the rice is cooking remove the core and seeds from the bell peppers (as in the image above). Steam peppers for 5 minutes until slightly softened. Place them, opening side down, on a plate to drain. While the peppers drain, cook the ground beef in a pan with the italian seasonings until browned. When the meat and rice are done, combine them in a large mixing bowl.
Stir in the tomato sauce, and cheese and mix until well blended. Place the peppers in a baking dish and spoon the mixture inside until full. Use the spoon to pack as much in them as possible. Back in the oven at 350 for fifteen minutes, let them cool off for a few minutes and enjoy!
YUM! These look so tasty! I’m going to pin them to my recipe board on Pinterest! I hope that’s okay?! YUM!

We love stuffed peppers at our house too. I like to stuff mine with quinoa but these look delicious and super simple. :)

I was JUST wanting to find a recipe to use up some of our peppers from the garden! This is so easy! Thanks for sharing!
What an easy recipe – thanks! Robert really enjoys stuffed peppers, but I’ve been lazy and bought him the frozen kind. (shhh – don’t tell anyone) This looks like something I could actually do!

Stuffed peppers are such a great weeknight go-to meal and yours look delicious! We always seem to turn to breakfast for dinner when we are feeling lazy (which is a lot). Nothing like a quick egg scramble with whatever veggies are hanging out in the fridge. Stopping by from Whimsy Wednesdays :)
Yum! Looks delicious! Stop by my Friday’s Five Features this week and link up this post (and others)! diy-vintage-chic.blogspot.com
One word: Yum! =) Happy Wednesday – and thanks for sharing at the Pinterest Power Party!

I always make stuffed peppers when we start getting lots from the garden. Hubby and I both really enjoy them. I have an easy recipe for a Sweet and Sour meatloaf that is one of our favorite easy meals. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
