Stuffed Peppers

This is a low carb version so no rice. You can make these with ground beef or ground turkey and add some rice to the stuffing mix if you like it . I used a mexican sausage called chorizo as the meat this time.

Stuffed Peppers
4 servings

2 large green or red peppers, halved lengthwise
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup tomato, chopped
about 2 ounces Salt and pepper, to taste
4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
2 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded, for topping

  • In a large pot, bring about half a potful of water to a boil.
  • Add the peppers and boil for 3 minutes; drain. In the same pot, brown the hamburger, onion and garlic.
  • Drain the fat and stir in the tomatoes and seasonings.
  • Cook until the tomatoes are hot; remove from the heat and stir in the 4 ounces of cheese.
  • Put the pepper halves in a greased 8x8" baking pan and fill with the meat mixture.
  • Sprinkle the extra cheese on top, if using.
  • Bake at 350ยบ for 20-25 minutes.
