Stuffed Bell Peppers
Very Good 4.5/5
(208 ratings)

This stuffed bell pepper recipe is really delicious! You can use red bell peppers if you like that flavor better. It incorporates your protein, starch, and veggies in one neat package! Brown rice is used for an added nutritional punch.

My husband loves them, and much better alternative to stuffed cabbage, that he just should NOT be allowed to eat!!

Can also pre-bake peppers at 450 for 15 minutes before filling, then cook again for about 10 minutes after stuffed and they are ready to eat. I've found after a few tries, that wrapping them in foil makes for softer peppers, and closer to my level of cooking skill. It might be me or I'd like to blame my oven - but otherwise I kept burning my peppers!

An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.
