Roasted Stuffed Bell Peppers

Submitted by: TYGGRESS

Introduction

I love stuffed peppers. By changing the ingrdients to turkey instead of beef and using whole grain rice, it's now a healthy, YUMMY alternative packed with nutrition. Cooking the rice ahead of time and storing in the fridge saves time later. I love stuffed peppers.

  • This was so good! I used spicy Italian sausage instead & ommited the rice. I added mushrooms, chopped fresh jalapeņo & a sm can of diced tomatoes w/green chilies. I also used the tomato sauce w/the jalapeņo since we like it spicy. Added a 1/4 cup of light cream cheese to the mix too. Amazing! - 3/24/12

  • Made this recipe last night. Easy to do. I did make a few changes I had only brown rice on hand so used it. I am lactose intolerant so I used reg mozzarella on my husband's peppers and then goat cheese mozzarella on mine. Delicious! - 1/20/10

  • This was great ~ However I changed it a bit because I got a little confused with the rice. I only used the brown rice instead of using both kinds ~ it tasted fabulous and my family LOVED IT!! - 4/28/09
