Stuffed Bell Peppers have been a huge favorite of mine since my aunt first made them for me many many years ago. At the time it seemed like such an elaborate, fancy recipe, but who knew they were really this simple to make! It’s a classic comfort food recipe that’s hearty, filling, easy to customize, and can feed a large family.


6 medium green peppers

1 lb ground beef

1 chopped onion

1 (6 7/8 ounce) box of Rice-a-Roni mix, Spanish flavor

1 (16 ounces) can tomato sauce

1 teaspoon sugar

1 (14 1/2 ounce) can tomatoes (for use in making the rice)

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or 1 cup American cheese




Remove tops and seeds from peppers; parboil peppers for 5 minutes and drain.

Place peppers in a baking dish. Combine ground beef and onion and cook together until done. Drain and set aside.

Prepare Rice-A-Roni according to package directions. When rice is done, combine it with the beef and onion. Fill peppers with rice mixture.

Mix the 1 teaspoons sugar with the tomato sauce and pour this AROUND the peppers (not over).

Cover the baking dish. Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes and then uncover and top with the shredded cheese.

Bake uncovered for about 5 minutes more to melt the cheese.
Serve with the tomato sauce.
