  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups shredded cheese whatever kind your family likes the best
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 5 to 6 bell peppers


  • Cut the top off the whole green peppers. Clean all the seeds out of the inside and rinse with water.
  • Put the peppers upside down to drain the water out.
  • Cook rice according to package directions
  • Brown ground beef . While browning add chopped onion, chopped bell pepper and minced garlic . Cook till onion and pepper are soft.
  • After beef is fully cooked, drain grease out then add diced tomatoes, cooked rice and 2 cups shredded cheese.
  • Put hollowed out peppers in a baking dish and fill with beef/rice mixture. I usually have a little filling left over so I put it in the bottom of the baking dish around the peppers. Cover with foil and cook 425* for 30 - 40 min until peppers are soft. (I like mine with a little bit of crunch to them so I cook them for about 30 minutes.)
  • After 30 - 40 minutes uncover peppers and add remaining cup of cheese. Cook for additional 5 min or until cheese is melted.
  • Serve and enjoy!!
