Ingredients for Stuffed Bell Peppers

  • Long grain white rice – leftover rice works great if you have some.
  • Bell peppers – if you’d prefer you can make use all green if they’re what’s cheaper.
  • Olive oil – only a little is needed for sauteing. Another neutral oil will work such as vegetable oil.
  • Ground beef – use one that’s 80%+ lean.
  • Yellow onion and fresh garlic – these create a delicious base of flavor, only use fresh.
  • Canned petite diced tomatoes – I like these smaller chunks but standard cut canned tomatoes will work fine.
  • Tomato sauce – if you are looking to reduce sodium in the recipe use no-salt tomato sauce and canned tomatoes. And of course season with less salt.
  • Italian seasoning – I love to use this blend here rather than adding 5 kinds of dried herbs individually.
  • Fresh parsley – this adds lots of fresh flavor. It’s one of my go-to ingredients I always keep stocked.
  • Mozzarella cheese – if you want even more flavor substitute 1/4 cup of the mozzarella for parmesan.
