I'm Cooking - Stuffed Peppers for Foodie Friday

As far as dinner goes, sometimes things have to be thrown together in a pinch if it wasn't really planned like my dinners seem to go more often than not, ahem. I happened to get a few peppers from our last Farmers Market here in town last week and had a little revelation with our left over rice and a can of tomatoes.

Stuffed Peppers

1 pound ground beef or turkey
2 large peppers - I used a red and a green
2 C Brown Rice
1 8oz can Diced Tomatoes - drained
1 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1-2 Tbl Worcestershire Sauce
This could easily be spiced up with a taco type seasoning as well.

Cook rice and ground beef accordingly in separate pans.
Core and take seeds from peppers, cut in half and set on baking pan with the openings toward each other.

Add tomatoes to rice when done, add spices to ground beef.
Stir rice mixture into the ground beef until combined
Fill peppers then add the remaining meat in the middle.
Bake at 350 for about a half hour or until the peppers are desired tenderness.

This dish was not entirely family approved as apparently I am the only one that will actually eat the peppers. I do remember having this as a kid and only eating the meat so I was okay with that. 

I am doing Foodie Friday with my sister over at Muffin-Top-Less Mom who is still in her first months of blogging and wouldn't know a link-up from a hole in the wall but that's okay because she has some fab recipes over there and I'd like to get her some extra exposure because she's my sister and go give her some love.

What's your favorite throw together recipe?

I would only use red peppers, but it sounds good!

And really, your SISTER is also a blogger now? Cool!
