  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 onion finely diced
  • 1 garlic close minced
  • 1, 14 ounce can diced tomatoes with or without spice
  • 1 cup cooked white rice
  • 12 mini peppers
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Sharp Cheddar


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut the peppers in half top to bottom and remove the seeds and ribs. Set aside.
  • Heat a large pan on medium-high heat with a little olive oil. Add onions and saute until soft, about 4 minutes. Crumble in ground beef and garlic and cook until beef is no longer pink. Remove from heat and drain grease. Add salt and pepper to taste, about a teaspoon of each.
  • Stir rice and tomatoes into ground beef mixture.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, fill each pepper with about 1 tablespoons of the meat mixture. Line the stuffed peppers in a 9"x13" pan. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and top with shredded cheddar. Bake for another 5 minutes, or until cheese is completely melted.
  • Serve immediately.
