Ground Beef Stuffed Green Bell Peppers With Cheese


Ground Beef Stuffed Green Bell Peppers with Cheese are easy to make ahead and put in the oven about an hour before you plan on having dinner. I like to cut the peppers in half so that more of the cheese browns while baking.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cut tops from green peppers; discard seeds and membranes.

Chop enough of the green pepper tops to make 1/4 cup, set aside.

Cook the whole green peppers, uncovered in boiling water for about 5 minutes; invert to drain well. Sprinkle insides of peppers lightly with salt.

In a skillet cook ground beef, onion and 1/4 cup chopped pepper till meat is browned and vegetables are tender. Drain off excess fat.

Add undrained tomatoes, uncooked rice, water, salt, Worcestershire, and a dash of pepper.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer about 20 minutes or until rice is tender.

Stir in cheese. Stuff peppers with meat mixture. Place in a 10x6x2 baking dish.

Bake, covered in a 350° oven for 30 minutes.
