STUFFED BELL PEPPERS

Ingredients:

  • 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

Instructions:

Step1: Remove tops and seeds from peppers; parboil peppers for 5 minutes and drain.

Step2: Place peppers in a baking dish. Combine ground beef and onion and cook together until done. Drain and set aside.

Step3: Prepare Rice-A-Roni according to package directions. When rice is done, combine it with the beef and onion. Fill peppers with rice mixture.

Step4: Mix the 1 teaspoons sugar with the tomato sauce and pour this AROUND the peppers (not over).

Step5: Cover the baking dish. Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes and then uncover and top with the shredded cheese.
