Ingridiens for Slow-Cooker Stuffed Peppers


Steps to make Slow-Cooker Stuffed Peppers


Prepare bell peppers


Carefully trim about ⅛ inch from the bottom of each bell pepper so it can stand upright. Cut ¼ inch off the top of each pepper. Remove and discard the stems. Finely chop the remaining flesh from the tops. Set aside. Scoop out and discard the seeds and the membranes from inside the peppers.


Prepare filling


In a large bowl, combine the reserved chopped bell pepper with 1 pound ground beef, 1 can tomatoes and their juices, 1 cup cheese, 1 cup cooked medium-grain white rice, 4 minced garlic cloves, 3 thinly sliced scallions, 2 teaspoons chili powder, ½ tsp ground cumin, 1 ½ teaspoons salt, and several grinds of black pepper. Mix with your hands until combined.


Stuff peppers


Spoon the filling evenly into the hollowed-out peppers, packing it in (the filling will come a little above the tops).


Add to slow cooker


Pour ½ cup chicken broth into the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker. Add the stuffed peppers. Sprinkle the top of each pepper with a pinch of salt.




Cover the slow cooker with a lid and cook on high until the peppers are tender and the ground beef is cooked through, about 3 to 3 ½ hours.


Add more cheese


Uncover and top with the remaining 1 cup cheese, cover again, and cook on high for 10 minutes until the cheese has melted.



To serve, sprinkle the peppers with the remaining scallions and add a dollop of sour cream to each. Enjoy!
