Stuffed Green Peppers

I have been trying to meal plan every week. I got tired of staring blankly at my pantry trying to figure out what to make for dinner. I am always trying to think of different recipes

This week I made Stuffed Green Peppers, you can make these a lot of different ways. I just winged it and made them last night and thought you might want the recipe so you can make them too.

Ingredients
  • 1 lb hamburger
  • Knorr Spanish Rice (5.6 oz packet
  • 8 green peppers
  • 2 cans Tomato sauce (8 oz can)
  • taco blend cheese
Instructions
  1. I boiled the green peppers for 15 minutes. Then cut the top off and scooped out the seeds. I browned that hamburger and drained the grease. I then combined the hamburger and rice in a large bowl and then added ½ the can of tomato sauce and mixed that all together. I then stuffed the green peppers with the mixture and poured the other half of tomato sauce. The last thing I did was sprinkle the cheese on top of each stuffed green peppers.
  2. Bake them at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. Everything is cooked so you just need to warm everything back up and melt the cheese.
  3. Note: I only made 4 stuffed peppers because that is how many family members there are. I had plenty of mixture left to make four more so that is why I adjusted the recipe to 2 cans of tomato sauce

You could easily make this night before and then when you get home from work throw them in the oven. I thought this recipe was delicious.
