Sweet mini peppers are stuffed with a ground beef, tomato and rice mixture for an adorable “mini” version of traditional stuffed peppers. Perfect for a unique appetizer or as a delicious meal.
I have always thought that I wouldn’t like stuffed peppers. Not sure why, because once I tried them I realized that they are crazy delicious. I wanted to try this mini pepper version because I like the sweet peppers and let’s face it they’re just so cute.
My daughter, the picky princess, actually ate five of them, peppers and all!
Stuffed Peppers couldn’t be easier to make. Combine browned ground beef and onion mixture with some cooked rice and canned tomatoes – I use half spicy and half plain tomatoes, but you can use whatever mix you like. They are cooked until the peppers are soft, then covered with some shredded Sharp Cheddar and heated just until the cheese melts. See? Super simple!
I had some homemade Ranch on hand that I spooned over some of the peppers and it was pretty tasty. Of course they are amazing on their own, too.
