Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients (serves 5)

 

  • 5 bell peppers (any color)
  • 1 lb. ground meat, lean
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup instant brown rice
  • 1 14-15 oz. can diced tomatoes with chili peppers, drained
  • 1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheese

Directions (preheat oven to 350 degrees F)

 

  1. Begin cooking the rice according to package directions.
  2. While the rice is cooking, begin cooking the garlic, onions, and ground meat in a large pan on medium heat.  This pan should be big enough to contain all the ingredients save the peppers.  Cook until the meat is no longer pink.  Drain the oil and discard.
  3. Add the can of diced tomatoes to the beef and bring to heat.  Add the rice and ¾ of the tomato sauce.  Stir until mixed.
  4. Wash and dry the bell peppers.  Cut the tops off and discard the top and seeds.
  5. Fill the peppers with the rice and beef mixture.  Pour the remaining tomato sauce on top of each pepper.  
  6. Put the peppers on a baking dish and cover loosely with aluminum foil.  Bake for 20 minutes.  
  7. Remove the aluminum foil, top the peppers with shredded cheese, and cook for an additional 10 minutes.


Tips

  • To give it more of a flair, you can add a can of black beans.
  • You can increase the servings and add another pepper by adding 1 cup chopped mushrooms during step 2. 
  • This can easily be made using the same methods as the Unrolled Stuffed Cabbage recipe.

About Commercial Printing

You may choose any commercial printer that fits your needs.  You may want to compare prices between local commercial printers such as Documart, FastSigns, FedEx Print and Ship Center, OfficeMax, Office Depot. You may compare the services of online commercial printers such as Vistaprint or Signs.com. Doing research on Google is recommended.

Commercial printers require vector files to produce items such as banners and posters. All vector files below are set up as full bleed.  This means that the color and art goes all the way to edge.

If you are displaying a banner outdoors, then it is recommended that you place your banner order with a request for grommets and wind slits. String/rope/cord may not hold up to the varying Colorado weather conditions. It is recommended to install banners with baling wire, or metal quicklinks/screwlocks that can be purchased from retailers such as Lowes or Home Depot.
