These Classic Stuffed Peppers put in a regular appearance in my kitchen. They are bright and cheerful looking and they taste absolutely delicious. It’s such a clever meal as the flesh of the pepper creates an edible bowl. They’re also a great way to use up leftover rice. 

To make these, I start by cooking the rice. I hollow out 6 peppers and sit them in a baking dish while I make the filling. The filling consists of a meat sauce made with ground beef, tomatoes, onion, garlic and oregano. I stuff the peppers, sprinkle some monterey jack on top and bake in the oven for a delicious and healthy dinner.

To make my Classic Stuffed Peppers, you will need the following ingredients:
