This is a combination of Spanish Rice and Stuffed Peppers. My kids ate everything, but my spousal unit was a picky eater. He didn't like bell peppers and the rest of us loved them. He would eat the filling from the stuffed pepper and leave the 'shell'. So, I came up with this dish to utilize the nice bell peppers from my garden.
Cook beef with onions in skillet, stiffing to break beef up into small pieces. Drain off as much grease as desired. Add all other veggies, tomato sauce, and water. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender. Add more water as needed, to keep from sticking. When veggies are tender, stir in rice and let heat through.
This meal is a complete one-dish meal - protein, veggies, and starch. Serve with taco chips or it goes very well with thick slices of buttered homemade artisan bread.
