Stuffed green bell peppers from Mom's recipe..a great family meal! Stuffed green bell peppers from Mom's recipe..a great family meal!
Number of Servings: 6


    6 large green peppers
    1 lb ground turkey
    2 tbsp chopped onion
    1 cup cooked rice
    1 tsp salt
    1/8 tsp garlic salt
    1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce


Note: You can use ground beef instead of ground turkey, but the nutritional facts will be different--the facts posted are for turkey. I find they taste just as good with the turkey.


*Preheat oven to 350 F

*Cut thin slice from stem of each pepper; remove guts and rinse

*Cook peppers 5 minutes in enough boiling water to cover, drain

*Cook and stir onion and turkey in skillet until turkey is light brown; drain

*Stir in rice, salt, garlic salt, and 1 cup tomato sauce; heat though

*Stuff each pepper with turkey mixture; stand upright in greased 8x8x12 baking dish

*Pour remaining sauce over peppers

*Cover and bake 45 minutes

*Uncover, bake 15 minutes longer


*Note: I couldn't find nutritional info for a whole pepper, so I didn't include that in the recipe. But I can't imagine a green pepper would add much more!

    Delish! I didn't boil them either, used hunts spag sauce (garlic and herb) instead of tomato sauce, and used 2 onions instead of just 2 T. Also added a few garlic cloves. - 2/13/09

    this is great! I took out the rice, added in some veggies like mushrooms and zucchini and put in a little chili powder to make it spicy....they turned out great!! - 11/16/08

    I eliminated the salt, used brown rice and leftover taco meat. Halved the peppers and stuffed open face. Really fills up the plate. Didn't boil either. A little shredded low fat cheddar adds nice color. - 3/14/09

    I've made these for years! I do not pre cook the peppers either, I reduce the heat and cook a few minutes longer. - 8/8/09
