    Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 4 -6 bell peppers
  • 1 (19 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15 -16 ounce) jar salsa
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • sour cream

    How to make it

  1. 1. STEP

    Combine beef, onion, seasoning mix and egg in a large bowl.

  2. 2. STEP

    Add rice and mix well.

  3. 3. STEP

    Cut peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and membrane.

  4. 4. STEP

    Spread tomatoes on the bottom of an ovenproof 12 X 9 inch baking dish. The liquid from the tomatoes will reduce during cooking so if (like me) you like lots of sauce, add about a cup of water. This also helps make the peppers softer.

  5. 5. STEP

    Place peppers, cut side up, on top of the tomatoes.

  6. 6. STEP

    Spoon beef mixture into peppers, mounding as necessary.

  7. 7. STEP

    Top each pepper with salsa.

  8. 8. STEP

    Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 40-45 minutes or until beef is cooked thoroughly and peppers are soft.

  9. 9. STEP

    Cover each pepper with cheese and return to oven, under the broiler, until the cheese melts- less than a minute, so watch carefully!

  10. 10. STEP

    Serve with sour cream and additional salsa.
