We have had an overwhelming abundance of green peppers in our garden this summer, and one of my favorite ways to use them up is to make stuffed green peppers.
There are plenty of stuffed green pepper recipes all across the Internet but my husband is so picky that typical recipes won't work for us. For one thing he doesn't like rice, so we definetly leave that out. Here's how we make ours:
6 large peppers
2 pounds hamburger
2 tablespoons worshestershire sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 small onion chopped
1 can Hunts meatloaf seasoning (see below)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1. Remove tops and seeds from washed green peppers.
2. Use a paring knife to cut 3 small slits in the bottom of each pepper. I do this to allow the grease from the hamburger to drain.
3. In a large bowl mix together hamburger, worshestershire sauce, chili powder and onion.
4. Stuff each pepper with hamburger mixture and place in a casserole dish.
5. Pour Hunts Meatloaf seasoning over top of peppers.
This is what the can looks like
6. Cover and bake for one hour (or until hamburger mixture inside of pepper is cooked thoroughly) in an oven that has been preheated to 400 degrees.
7. When hamburger mixture inside of tomatoes has been cooked thoroughly, sprinkle the tops of peppers with cheese and return to oven for about five minutes or until cheese is melted. If there is any excess grease in pan I remove it before putting on cheese.
8. Once cheese is melted they are ready to serve. They may look like a hot mess in the casserole dish but they are absolutely delicious, and taste is what matters isn't it?
