Stuffed Peppers

This is a favorite, especially in the fall and winter. Thanks to Recipe Zaar for this one. We have made this at least 10 times.


  • 6 medium green peppers
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 (6 7/8 ounce) box rice-a-roni Spanish rice mix
  • 1 (16 ounce) 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 American cheese


  1. Remove tops and seeds from peppers; parboil peppers for 5 minutes and drain.
  2. Place peppers in a baking dish.
  3. Combine ground beef and onion and cook together until done.
  4. Drain and set aside.
  5. Prepare Rice-A-Roni according to package directions.
  6. When rice is done,combine it with the beef and onion.
  7. Fill peppers with rice mixture.
  8. Mix the 1 teaspoons sugar with the tomato sauce and pour this AROUND the peppers (not over).
  9. Cover the baking dish.
  10. Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes and then uncover and top with the shredded cheese.
  11. Bake uncovered for about 5 minutes more to melt cheese.
  12. Serve with the tomato sauce.
