..Stuffed Green Peppers


These stuffed peppers were the BOMB.  They’re also perfect for when you are entertaining because you can make one per guest to make it easy to plan ahead.  I’ve been seeing them all over Pinterest.com but didn’t see a recipe that really won me over and I needed to satiate my craving so I just decided to fill them with stuff that usually tastes good together that I also personally like. That is what makes this dish so great, you can totally switch things around to your own taste.  You could also make a lighter version of this by switching out these items with ground turkey, brown rice, and no cheese.

Ingredients (served four)
Four green peppers
1 can black beans
1 onion (chopped)
1 clove garlic (minced)
1lb Ground beef
1 Bag of minute rice
1 Can tomato soup
1/4th red pepper (chopped)
1 bag shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

1.  Wash and slice the rounded bottoms off of your peppers so they stand up straight. Slice an inch off the tops and then chop them (minus the stem) and set aside.  Place them in a baking dish lined with aluminum foil.



2.  Add a little olive oil to a pan.  Sautee the meat, chopped onion, green & red peppers, and garlic.  You can also season to taste here with salt and pepper.



3.  When the meat is partially browned, add the tomato soup (do not add 1 can water).


4.       After the meat has fully browned up, cook your minute rice in the microwave and add this to the mixture along with the black beans.  When the peppers have become tender and the meat is cooked you can remove from heat and stuff into peppers.

5.       Sprinkle cheese on the top of each one and bake at 400 for about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted over top & enjoy!  They were so delicious we ate them up before I got to take a picture of the finished product but you get the idea :)
