Southwestern Bell Pepper
Today I have the pleasure of sharing one of my most enjoyable recipes with you. Its not hard, nor does is take long to make, but once served you will be engulfed with not only the sweet aroma of cooked peppers but a hearty meal too!
This cost effective meal is plentiful as well the stuffing can be frozen giving you the ability to prep, while making tonights dinner, an entire dish to use another day as well. It keeps well frozen and non of the seasonings get lost in doing so either.
Prep your taste buds because this will surely become a family favourite!
Make sure to use lean ground beef, a chopped onion, diced garlic, taco seasoning (1 Packet). You will need 1 egg beaten, cooked rice and obviously your bell peppers 😉
I like to use diced tomatoes, pure tomato sauce and buy my shredded cheese in bulk ( you can usually find a large bag on sale at No Frills for $5.00)
For added yumminess I layer my shredded cheese as I stuff the peppers. Line your roaster with tomato sauce to avoid the peppers from sticking to the bottom and ruining your masterpiece of course!
You will preheat your over to 375 and let bake for approx. 45 minutes – ensure the beef is cooked thoroughly and the peppers are soft. Remove from the oven and top with cheese, place back into the oven and broil until all melted – make sure to keep an eye on them!
Once done enjoy with a slice of garlic bread too! The best way to make this is to make your own garlic butter and use lots of it too – if you couldn’t tell Im a huge fan of using lots of cheese whenever I can as well:)
Bon Appétit xo
I make something very similar and love this recipe! So yummy. I have never added cheese yet. What a great idea. Next time I will add cheese !

My two fave things, stuffed bell peppers and garlic bread, YUM!!! I have actually never enjoyed them both at the same time, looks like I am going to have to remedy that PRONTO! 🙂

I love stuffed peppers, but sadly I am the only one in my house who does so I never have them unless I order them at a restaurant.
Confession- I have never made stuffed bell pepper before but these look soooo yummy and healthy!! Great recipe!!
I don’t cook enough, but I think this is something I could actually make. I love that there are healthy ingredients like peppers and tomato sauce. Sadly, I’ll try and skip the garlic bread. Nice!
I love stuffed peppers but don’t make them very often! This looks like a yummy recipe. I need to go get some peppers now!
You sure do and you will love them!

This looks delicious! I make mine a little differently but stuffed Bell Peppers is a favorites of my husband. I’m sure he would love if I made it more often.
I’m sure he would too especially with the extra cheese added:)

I love easy to prepare meals like this. I make something similar when I find a really good deal on bell peppers.
Great to know, I’m the same, it really makes a difference to have a easy dish to prep 🙂
Awesome idea. This is absolutely my favorite dish.
This sounds delicious. I have not had stuffed bell peppers in a very long time. I wish my family would eat this meal.
Maybe try it out? I am always surprised how fast this dish gets gobbled up every time I make it I never do enough!
I love making stuffed green peppers. I like to make extra and freeze them for a no-fuss meal later.
I have never added grated cheese, great addition.
Thanks Faye! What a great idea to make ahead and freeze! The extra cheese really makes the dish:)

I love stuffed peppers and I can’t wait till my peppers are big enough to cook. Those looks super delicious.

I love making stuffed bell peppers and love trying to mix and match new flavors with different colored bell peppers. I love bell peppers though as I am often found eating them raw.

I love stuffed bell peppers. I use rice in mine with the cheese and onion too. They are so tasty. I’ll have to add the tomato sauce to the bottom so they dont’ stick. Great tip.
Thanks Dina! Hope it works just as well for you.
Yum! These look really delicious. And garlic bread is amazing with just about anything.
I totally agree Lisa! Thanks 🙂
Smart touch to add the garlic bread. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a great meal.
Homemade garlic bread is the absolute best too:) thanks!
I’ve never had anything like this before, I need to try this for dinner soon. It looks like it might be surprisingly good.

Oh yummy! Thank you so much for this reminder. I am going to have to try this out for my family. My husband love peppers and I;ve been meaning to try making him some stuffed peppers.
Stuffed peppers are amazing. I’d never had them before I was in the Army, but the chow hall nearest my barracks made them all the time and I fell in love.
You will surely love these then too! Let me know how they turn out:)
