Stuffed Bell's

This Recipe has been passed down in my family for years! Easy and so delicious! Bell Pepper's Stuffed with our version of a Spanish rice(southern style lol)!

Stuffed Bell's


1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 shallots minced
2 cloves garlic minced
1 1/2 cans tomato soup
1 1/4 cup ketchup
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 cups cooked white rice(leave it just little al dente)
Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1. Cook your rice and set aside

2.Prepare Peppers, Cut tops off, Remove stem, and clean inside *Also cut a little bit off the bottoms so when you fill them they will sit steady*. Drizzle with Olive oil and salt and pepper. Bake at 450 upside down for 10-15 Min's or until they are charred a bit on the outside.

3. While peppers are cooking prepare the meat sauce. Brown Ground beef Drain and set aside. In the same pan saute shallots and garlic for about 3 Min's. *should not have to add any oil because there will be a little left in the pan after you pour out the brown beef*

4. Return beef to the pan along with tomato soup, ketchup, and chili powder. Mix well and bring to a simmer. Turn heat off and add rice. Mix well.

5. Spoon mixture into peppers. Top with cheese. Then top with tops of peppers. Bake at 350 for about 10 Min's or til cheese is melted.

According to size of your bell peppers this will make 6-10 stuffed peppers! Now I only done three peppers but I still made the full amount of filling so I could cool and store in the fridge for our lunches tomorrow! But if you want only 3-4 peppers I would cut the filling recipe in half!
