This casserole was a hit at my house tonight…and my daughter is a very picky eater. It’s even better than actual stuffed peppers in my opinion because it’s all mixed together in one dish!
2 green bell peppers
1 red bell pepper
1 pound ground turkey or beef
1 bag of boil in a bag rice cooked on stove
1 can diced tomatos (any variety)
Onions (optional) I used dry minced
1 bag shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
Trader Joe’s 21 Season Salute (optional)
Cook ground turkey or beef on stove and drain. Set aside. Grease a 9×13 casserole dish. Cut out the cores of the peppers. Slice into strips and dice. Put in greased dish. Put the remaining ingredients into the dish and mix well. (only use 1/2 bag of the shredded cheese at this time)
Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, top with the rest of the shredded cheese, and put back in the oven. Broil for 5 minutes until cheese bubbles and browns. Remove. Let cool and enjoy.
Please remember I don’t measure…I just add until I think it looks good…and I am of the opinion, the cheesier the better! You can add other ingredients or seasonings. If you try it, be sure and let me know what you think.
