Stuffed Bell Peppers

Cook time: 25 Min  Prep time: 15 Min  Serves: 4



2 green or red bell peppers
1 1/2 c cooked rice
1 lb ground beef
3 green onions, sliced
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
5-6 dash(es) hot sauce
10 oz can petite diced tomatoes with green chilies
shredded mozzarella cheese





1. Cut the bell peppers in half (I like mine lengthwise) and remove the seeds. Place them in a pot of boiling water for 3 minutes. Remove to a baking dish.
2. In a skillet, brown the ground beef. Drain off the grease and add the onions and cook for 1 minute. Add in all the seasonings, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Stir to combine well. Stir in the tomatoes with juice and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the rice and combine well.
3. Spoon the mixture into the pepper shells halfway and sprinkle with a little cheese. Fill the rest of the way and mound it on top then sprinkle with more cheese. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
