Stuffed Peppers – A Beautiful Mess


I’ve been on a short dinner spree lately. Even though I love all of the rotating dinners we have in our house, I wanted to add some new things to it. This is where the stuffed pepper recipe comes into play. Very delicious! very easy! Although it is already a balanced and healthy meal, it is also easy to customize.

Stuffed peppers are filling, inexpensive, and simple ingredients and come together in about 30 minutes. You can’t love him?!

directione

Start preparing the Spanish rice (on the stove or in the rice cooker) until it is cooked and ready to incorporate later.

Prepare sweet pepper. Cut it in half and remove the seeds and inner veins as well as the stems at the top. Add a little oil and salt and place in the baking dish, skin side down. Bake in the oven at 425°F (218°C) for 20 minutes.

While the rice and peppers are cooking, prepare the rest of the filling. Chop the shallots and mince the garlic. Cook it with the ground meat in a little oil until the meat is cooked through (no longer pink). Season with chili powder, a little salt and pepper and add the tomato sauce. Once the Spanish rice is ready, place it in the pan as well.

Stuff the peppers with rice and meat. Then cover it with cheese. Bake in the oven at 425°F (218°C) for an additional 10-12 minutes. The cheese should look melted and almost bubbled. Then sprinkle chopped coriander just before serving.

Tips and alternatives

  • You can substitute ground beef with ground turkey or chicken for a leaner option.
  • If you want to make this dish meat-free, you can replace the ground meat with beans.
  • Use less rice or substitute with cauliflower rice if you want to reduce the carbs in this recipe.
  • This recipe calls for four bell peppers, one more than you see pictured here. This is because I usually reserve some of the filling for this recipe and top it with a little grated cheese for our little boy. He’s not at the age where we can slice bell peppers or appreciate presentation. 🙂
