Stuffed Bell Pepper Casserole

What do you do when you have an abundance of fresh bell peppers that you need to use up? All sorts of things! I have lots of recipes that incorporate peppers because summer provides me with more than I know what to do with. You can stuff them for a more individualized look, but when I’m pressed for time and don’t feel like making them look pretty, I turn those peppers into a Stuffed Bell Pepper Casserole.

This recipe for Stuffed Bell Pepper Casserole is pretty simple to put together and it tastes absolutely fabulous! If you have lots of fresh peppers on hand and about an hour and 10 minutes to prep and cook, this is one recipe you won’t want to pass up.

Ingredients:

6 large bell peppers, cored and cut into thirds or fourths, depending on the size of the pepper

1 lb ground beef, browned

1 package Beef Flavored Rice-a-Roni, prepared according to instructions on box

3 cups shredded cheese – we prefer Monterey Jack

1 can diced tomatoes with onions and garlic

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon Weber Beef Seasoning

1/2 teaspoon sugar

Ketchup

1 large bowl

1 large baking dish

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

In large bowl, combine all ingredients EXCEPT ketchup, 1 cup of cheese and peppers. Combine well to ensure that all ingredients have been evenly distributed.

Spray baking dish with non-stick spray or coat lightly with butter.

Take peppers and line the bottom of the baking dish with them. If you have some left over, that’s fine. Set them aside.

Top the layer of peppers with the filling you just mixed together. Place remaining pepper pieces on top of the filling evenly, or create a design with them if you wish. Sprinkle remaining cup of cheese over the top and drizzle with ketchup.

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes to allow cheese to brown just a little bit.

Remove from oven and allow to cool 5 minutes before serving.

Makes 6 servings.

    This sounds great. I never thought of using Rice-A-Roni instead of regular rice! That would be much more flavorful. (Sometimes, if I just don’t feel like rice, I use a package of Stove Top Stuffing instead. It goes well with peppers.)
