This was one of my very first recipes 20 years ago when I was learning how to cook. My daughter still loves it today. Even though it is not a difficult recipe, not all recipes should take crazy amounts of skill! Now that she’s learning to cook, these recipes are great for her to start learning from!
Makes: 6 stuffed peppers
1 box beef flavored rice-a-roni
14.5 oz. can tomato sauce
6 bell peppers of any color, flat bottoms so they will sit up
1.5 lbs. ground sirloin
2 oz. mushrooms, minced
1 cup shredded colbyjack cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare rice as instructed on box. In medium sized skillet, brown sirloin until no pink is seen, then add mushrooms and cook 3 minutes longer. In large bowl, add meat mixture, rice mixture and tomato sauce. Stir to incorporate. Cut tops off of peppers and deseed. Scoop mix into each pepper to heaping. Place peppers in deep baking dish and fill with 1″ water on the bottom. Bake for 20 minutes uncovered. Add cheese equally over peppers and close oven door, turning off heat. Remove when cheese is melted and serve.
