Stuffed Peppers

24 Jul


OK, this one was a little bit more ambitious than a crock pot recipe.  First of all, there are multiple things going on at once and multiple trips inside the oven.  I did this for a Friday night meal, wouldn’t do that again because I missed out on all the weekend relaxing night time!  Second, it was good.  But not knock my socks off.  The men liked it a lot better though.


  • Olive Oil
  • 1 lb. of ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp. of taco seasoning (I used Taco Bell packet seasonings because it’s my fav)
  • 2 cups of cooked rice (i used brown)
  • 3 bell peppers, halved and seeded (you can do any color you like, but I found the orange and yellow too sweet and preferred the red)
  • 1 can black beans, drained (I used a can that said seasoned)
  • 1 15-16 oz. jar of salsa
  • Shredded cheese
  • Cilantro
  • Sour Cream


  1. Cook ground beef and rice.
  2. Preheat over to 400 degrees.  Lightly coat the peppers with olive oil and bake for 20-25 minutes.  They will start to brown on some edges and the bottom.  Let them cool slightly.  While the peppers are cooking, saute onions until see through.
  3. Combine taco seasoning, ground beef, onions, black beans, and salsa.  Mix.
  4. Fill the peppers generously with the mixture.  Cook for an additional 15-20 minutes.  Top each pepper with the shredded cheese put back into the oven until melted.
  5. Top each pepper with cilantro and sour cream.

Granted not THAT complicated, but not as easy as I tend to do.  Not one that after it was over did I say, Wow that was worth all that effort.  Like I said it was good, just not fabulous.  Enjoy!!!
