Mom’s Stuffed Green Peppers {Delicious}

Share Button

One of my favorite recipes from my Mom are her Stuffed Green Peppers. I cannot even begin to count the number of times I have had called her to remind me how to make them. I even wrote it down at one point, only to misplace it once we moved. However, she was sweet enough to email me the recipe so that I will never be without it again. I have never been a fan of green peppers, but this recipe definitely changed that and I am sure it will for you as well!

You will need:

1 lb hamburger
2 large onions
2 cans tomato sauce (paste with water added may be used)
1 can chopped tomatoes (or fresh)
4 cups cooked rice
cheddar cheese or mozzarella, etc.
6 or more green peppers

1. Start hamburger cooking, add chopped onions and cook until well-browned.

2. Mix in tomato sauce, rice, and tomatoes.

3. Cut tops of green peppers off and save. Remove insides of peppers. Blanch peppers and tops in pot of boiling water for about 5 minutes, remove and let drain, then salt the inside of the peppers well. Stand peppers up and put in alternating layers of hamburger mix and grated cheese.

4. Place peppers; with tops on, upright in a pan (I use a cake pan), cover with foil, and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour.

You are going to absolutely love these, as will your whole family. I also would like to thank my Mom for letting me share her delicious recipe (Thanks Mom)!
