Stuffed Bell Pepper Recipes

I prefer green bell peppers but the sweeter red or orange bell peppers work well too.

Ingredients:

  • 6 bell peppers, tops sliced off and set aside, seeds removed
  • Advertisement

  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic, or more to taste
  • 1/2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, finely shredded

Directions:

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Sauté onion, celery, and garlic in the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until onion and celery are tender. Add the ground pork and continue sautéing until pork is no longer pink and remove from heat.

    Stir in rice and then cheese. Fill bell peppers with mixture. Place peppers in a baking dish bottom side down. Cover with the pepper tops that were set aside.

    Bake until peppers are tender and filling is heated through, about 25 to 35 minutes.

I use my jumbo muffin pan when I make stuffed peppers. Each muffin container is just the right size to hold a delicious stuffed pepper without it tipping over. My jumbo muffin pan holds 6 stuffed bell peppers very nicely!

I was never fond of green peppers until last year when a friend gave us some out of her garden. After trying stuffed bell peppers, this recipe became one of my favorites.

I just made stuffed peppers for the first time and they were great. I used ground turkery breast (husband dieting and getting blood pressure under control) about a cup or so low sodium chicken stock (I found out that Rachel Ray's is lower in everything and beats the other lower sodium name brand), half an onion, a bit of pepper, some parsley, rosemary, and rice (I only buy instant--I always mess up the regular) Sorry, I didn't measure and I only used dry herbs.

The next night--I used the leftover meat in a lowfat wheat tortilla, romain lettue, and South Beach's Diet Ranch dressing...cold and Yummy!

I have a fun easy one that you don't have to cook. I use the red, yellow and orange sweet peppers. Seed them and cut into quarters. Next crush one sleeve of saltine crackers. Add shredded cheese ( a handful or two) and just enough mayo to make it stick together. Fill the peppers and a quick easy healthy snack. I hope you enjoy this! God bless you.
