Stuffed Green Peppers
Original Recipe Yield 6 servings
6 green bell peppers
salt to taste
1 pound ground beef
1/3 cup chopped onion
salt and pepper to taste
1 (14.5 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, chopped
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup uncooked rice
1/2 cup water
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed tomato soup
water as needed
1.Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cut the tops off the peppers, and remove the seeds. Cook peppers in boiling water for 5 minutes; drain. Sprinkle salt inside each pepper, and set aside.
2.In a large skillet, saute beef and onions for 5 minutes, or until beef is browned. Drain off excess fat, and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the tomatoes, rice, 1/2 cup water and Worcestershire sauce. Cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until rice is tender. Remove from heat, and stir in the cheese.
3.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. (175 degrees C). Stuff each pepper with the beef and rice mixture, and place peppers open side up in a baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine tomato soup with just enough water to make the soup a gravy consistency. Pour over the peppers.
4.Bake covered for 25 to 35 minutes, until heated through and cheese is melted and bubbly.
My hubby loves stuffed peppers and said these were the best he had ever had :) The kiddos even loved them... I had extra filling left over so I just put it in a dish, sprinkled some cheese on the top and they loved it :P It was really easy to make and so yummy.
They loved it and jumped about 50 more times!!!! We couldn't get Daddy to do it... he said he didn't have his bathing suit on..... chicken :)
My parents have a little dog that absolutely LOVES Annalee..... he follows her around the whole time we are there and wines whenever she leaves him. This is always how you found them before bed time..... precious.
Daddy and his girl taking a walk to the creek.
A little trout that was trying to hide after the kids interrupted him :)
What is the world are they doing???? in the freezing water???
Here's Josh patiently looking... for...
A crawdad.... this is the biggest one they have ever caught.... it really looked like a baby lobster.
Just to give you an idea of how big Mr. crawdad was.... this is my Daddy's hand holding it.
The loot.... and yes, we did let them all go..... even though Annalee wanted to keep Mr. Gigantic Crawdad. :)
