It seems like forever since I’ve posted a crockpot recipe. Let me tell you, it was well worth the wait!! Even if I must say it myself!! Today before church, I put stuffed peppers in the crockpor and they were delicious. I did all the prep work last night so that I wouldn’t have so much to do today and it all paid off. I’ve never been a huge fan of stuffed peppers, but these are enough to make the biggest critic change their mind!!
I often think that my photos don’t do my food justice, but I share anyway, just to give you and idea of how it turns out. This meal is no exception!! It tasted way better than it looks in the picture. With that said, here it is….
1 lb. ground beef 1 medium onion, diced 1 cup rice
4 large peppers (red, orange, or yellow) tops removed, devained, and cleaned
1 cup shredded cheddar & monterey jack, plus extra
2 cups spaghetti sauce, plus extra salt, pepper, garlic powder, and parsely to taste
In a fry pan, add ground beef, rice and seasonings. Cook until ground beef is browned. (Mixture may be refrigerated at this point and used at a later time.) Add shredded cheese to mixture. Fill each pepper evenly with mixture. Pour 1 cup of spaghetti sauce in crockpot. Place stuffed peppers in sauce. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. If spaghetti sauce gets thick or cooks away, add another cup of sauce about half way through. Half hour before serving, pour a tablespoon of spaghetti sauce on each pepper and sprinkle with a tablespoon of cheese.
