Why I Love This Recipe

This is a fun dish to serve guests, its really easy, can stay warm for a long time and looks fun when served! Serve with some steamed or pan fried asparagus, squash or a green salad or whatever you think.

Back story: I have some cookbooks, which is where I found this to begin with, and many times I discover that once a dish made they are lacking something, they are bland and boring. So I searched some online sources for 'stuffed peppers' and saw what they added and also experimented on my own with additions.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 Red bell peppers (1-2 per person)
1 1/2 lbs ground beef (for 4 peppers)
2 onions chopped (I like red onion)
2 cloves garlic (use garlic powder if you don't have fresh.
2 tsp cumin *optional - I just love cumin with beef, add more or less to taste
1 tsp Fresh pepper or seasoned pepper *optional
1 tsp sea salt *optional
2 stalks green onion chopped

8 oz cream cheese (I use 1/3 less fat)
Shredded cheddar cheese (play around with other options to see what you like: mozzarella, parmesan)


Cut tops off peppers to save for a lid later.

Hollow out the peppers.

Sautee onions & garlic in a little olive oil or whatever you have.

Add ground beef, cook and drain.

Add cream cheese and cumin, pepper, salt and green onion to beef mixture & stir until combined & warm.

Stuff into peppers a little over filled and sprinkle top with shredded cheese.

For a fun presentation take the tops you cut off and place them on top tilted a bit.

BAKE at 350 for 40 minutes on a baking sheet or casserole dish.
