Now, on to today's post. When I first started blogging I knew that I would be posting recipes from time to time but not as much as I have lately. Which makes me feel the need to be real here. Lately we have probably eaten just as many take out meals as I have cooked. Trying new recipes is my attempt to shake things up and add some new dishes to our menu that I enjoyed cooking and the family enjoyed eating. So, that being said I hope you guys don't mind me sharing.
This recipe for Stuffed Bell Peppers was my Mom's recipe and sadly the only one I have that is in her handwriting. I came across it the other day in my recipe binder and realized that I had not made it in years.
Stuffed Bell Peppers
6 medium green peppers
1 lb ground beef
1/2 tsp salt
1 16 oz can of diced tomatoes, I like to use Rotel
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
8 oz shredded cheese, I usually use cheddar
Cut the bell peppers (you can cut the top off to stuff but I like to cut them vertically). Remove the seeds and membrane. Boil in salted water for about 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a casserole dish.
Brown the ground beef and onion. Drain. Return to pan and add 1/2 tsp salt, a dash of pepper, canned tomatoes, water, rice and Worcestershire sauce. Simmer until rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of the cheese. Stuff peppers. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Once done top with the remaining cheese and place bake in the oven for a minute or two to melt.
They were a big hit the other night when I made them.
