To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:

Ingredients:

1 cup cooked brown rice

1 pound extra lean ground beef (96%), see shopping tip

1 cup onions, diced

Salt and pepper, to taste

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons ketchup

1 tablespoon mustard (I used a spicy brown mustard)

1 tablespoon pickle relish

⅓ cup tomato sauce, can or jarred

3 tablespoons water

1 cup lite cheddar cheese, mozzarella or blend, shredded (I used Trader’s lite Mexican blend)

4 large red bell peppers, yellow or orange (each about 3½ inches high and 3½ inches wide)

Instructions:

Cook rice and set aside. Cut off the top of 4 bell peppers about 1-inch down from top. Clean out seeds and membranes. Throw away the tops. 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large nonstick pan, brown ground beef and onions. Season beef with a little salt and pepper. Be sure to break up ground beef into small pieces as it cooks.

Stir in Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, mustard, pickle relish, tomato sauce and 3 tablespoons water. Mix well. Stir in ¾ cup shredded cheese and cooked rice. Mix well and continue to cook until heated through. Add 1-2 more tablespoons of water, if getting a little dry. Remove from heat.

Stuff each bell pepper with ground beef mixture, top each stuffed pepper with 1 tablespoon shredded cheese. Place each in a 9-inch baking dish.  Pour 1 cup water in bottom of baking dish. Cover dish with foil and bake for 40-45 minutes. If peppers are not soft enough, cook about 5 minutes more.

Once cooked, cooled and wrapped, they freeze great!
