  • Ingredients

  • 1

    lb lean ground beef

  • ¼

    cup chopped onion

  • 1-2

    celery stalk chopped

  • 1

    (1¼ ounce) package taco seasoning mix

  • 1

    egg, beaten

  • 2

    cups cooked rice

  • 4 -6

    bell peppers

  • 1

    (19 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • 1

    (15 -16 ounce) jar salsa

  • shredded cheddar cheese

  • sour cream


Directions 1 Combine beef, onion,celery, seasoning mix and egg in a large the large pan. 2 Add rice and mix well. 3 Cut peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and membrane. 4 Spread tomatoes on the bottom of an ovenproof 12 X 9 inch baking dish. The liquid from the tomatoes will reduce during cooking so if (like me) you like lots of sauce, add about a cup of water. This also helps make the peppers softer. 5 Place peppers, cut side up, on top of the tomatoes. 6 Spoon beef mixture into peppers, mounding as necessary. 7 Top each pepper with salsa. 8 Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 40-45 minutes or until beef is cooked thoroughly and peppers are soft. 9 Cover each pepper with cheese and return to oven, under the broiler, until the cheese melts- less than a minute, so watch carefully! 10 Serve with sour cream and additional salsa. USED GROUND TURKEY, Less, temptures then beef. About 20-25 minutes. for turkey.
