Beef and Rice Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed bell peppers make a delicious everyday meal, one that many people consider comfort food. With the classic combination of ground beef and rice, veggies, and melted cheese on top, they are more filling than you might expect.

For this recipe, you aren’t cooking or even browning the beef before you add it to the peppers. Because of that, the beef should be as lean as possible (at least 90/10); otherwise, it may make the filling too greasy when the peppers bake in the oven. That being said, you can adapt the filling to your liking, replacing the beef with leaner options such as ground turkey or chicken, or change the flavor profile a bit by using a mix of ground Italian pork and ground beef. And when you’re shopping for the peppers, look for ones that are large and sturdy; sometimes bell peppers can vary in size and you want ones that can fit the filling. This way when you core and seed them, there’s plenty of pepper left.

This tried-and-true recipe is a family favorite. Beef stuffed peppers make for a great meal on their own for a hearty lunch, but if you’re serving them for dinner, you might consider a green salad and a loaf of crusty bread. Or if you’d like something warm and starchy, mashed or baked potatoes would amp up the comfort food factor.
