Chef's Quick Tip: Stuffed peppers
This week, Chef Stephanie Berghoff with The Home Cook, shows Tina Redwine how to make stuffed peppers.
Baked Stuffed Peppers with Ground Beef:
Brown 1 lb. of ground beef and a half of a diced onion in skillet. Season with salt and pepper.
While the beef is browning, cut the peppers in half and cut out the insides using a paring knife.
Bake the peppers at 375 for 2-3 minutes just to soften them
Once the beef is cooked through, add in two cups of cooked rice and 16 oz. of tomato sauce. Stir to combine.
Spoon about a cup of the meat mixture into each pepper and top with your favorite shredded cheese, such as mozzarella
Spray a sheet of aluminum foil with a non-stick spray before covering the peppers. Put into a 375 oven for 10 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 5 minutes until the cheese is browned and bubbly.
