Outstanding Stuffed Bell Peppers
4 Bell peppers, halved (buy 5; only boil 4 and dice the other one)
1 can Ro-Tel diced tomatoes wtih green chilies
1 can cr. mushroom soup
3 c. cooked long grain rice
1 T. butter
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, diced (as mentioned above)
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
Velveeta cheese slices
Brown the one bell pepper with the onion in the butter. Saute. Then, add hamburger meat and brown. Drain off excess oil and set aside. In a big pot, after gutting the peppers, boil some water and add peppers.
(You CAN boil until peppers are tender (but not mushy) then take them out, I don't like mine boiled but if you do go ahead). Put on a cookie sheet or deep pan. Add mushroom soup, Ro-Tel tomatoes, rice and seasonings to the hamburger mixture. Stir and stuff into peppers.
Slice Velveeta cheese and put a thick slice on top of each pepper half.
