  • 1

    (16-ounce) jar fire-roasted red peppers drained, split, seeded

  • 3

    cups shredded Mexican cheese blend

  • pounds lean ground beef

Preheat the oven to 375°F . Grease a 10-inch pie plate lightly with olive oil and line with the red peppers. Scatter 1 cup cheese on top. In a large bowl, mix 1 cup cheese, the beef, 3/4 cup of the salsa, the bread crumbs, eggs, parsley, salt and pepper until just combined. Press into the pepper-and-cheese-lined pie plate. Spread the remaining salsa over the top. Bake for 35 minutes. Scatter the remaining 1 cup cheese on top and bake for 10 minutes longer. Let cool for about 15 minutes before slicing.
