Stuffed Pepper Casserole…

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! 

Ingredients:

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

Italian seasoning

Trader Joe’s 21 Season Salute (optional)

Directions:

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.

BBQ Chicken Pineapple Pizza…

The following recipe is quick, easy, and delicious…a special request from my daughter for supper tonight. 

I cooked the boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the crockpot overnight on low. I let the chicken simmer in chicken broth. Once I was ready to make the pizza, I removed it from the crock pot and shredded it with a metal hand chopper.


Ingredients:

1 can Pineapple chunks or tidbits

1 bottle BBQ sauce (use whatever you like)

1 package shredded pizza cheese

1 pizza crust (I used Mama Mary’s) 

Shredded chicken (about 4 cups)

I cooked the pizza on a baking stone. Put crust on stone and spread BBQ sauce on crust. I only used half of the bottle.


Spread chicken evenly over the crust and season with your favorite seasoning. I used Trader Joe’s 21 Season Salute.


Spread pineapples on top of chicken and top with shredded pizza cheese. Use whatever amount you prefer. Personally I think the more cheese the better!


Bake in over for 10 to 12 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes, slice and enjoy! 


I hope you’ll try the recipe. The best part is you can add whatever ingredients you like. Because I never really measure anything you can use more or less of the mentioned ingredients. As I’ve said before….make it your own!

It’s  very simple and quick and when it comes to everyday meals, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
