5 stars from 1 rating of Stuffed Green Peppers

A Quick & Easy Dish

This is a main dish that I recently made and everyone really enjoyed it. This dish can be easily customized to fit anyone's needs. Change the vegetables, the sauce, the meat, and the cheese - make it your own. Also, there are many ways to cook this dish. I prefer to cook the meat first, instead of in the oven. I hope you enjoy this meal!

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: Serves 5

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 lb Ground Pork Sausage
  • 5 large Green Peppers, top sliced off
  • 4 small Banana Peppers, chopped
  • 2 small cans Mushrooms, drained
  • 5 slices Provolone Cheese
  • 8 oz Cheese (colby jack, mozzerella), shredded
  • 1 jar Spaghetti Sauce (your choice)

Instructions

  1. Brown the ground beef and sausage in a frying pan. Chop up the meat into small pieces.
  2. While the meat is cooking, clean the vegetables and slice off the tops of the bell peppers. Clean out the pepper - it should look like a bowl. Place into a baking dish.
  3. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Put the chopped up banana peppers into a large bowl, along with the mushrooms and shredded cheese. I used Colby Jack.
  4. Drain the cooked meat and put into the large bowl with the vegetables and cheese.
  5. Thoroughly mix the ingredients in the bowl. Use a spoon or ladle to put the mixture into the bell peppers. Fill the peppers (If you have extra, just put it into the bottom of the baking dish).
  6. Open the spaghetti sauce and pour over and around the bell peppers. Then take a slice of provolone and put it on top of each pepper.
  7. Put your dish into the oven and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

      Yum! I made stuffed peppers last night for dinner, but with a combo of sirloin and turkey. I love that you can really tailor the recipe - even the type of cheese!
