Mama’s Stuffed Peppers: A delicious change from the ordinary!



  • 3 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion chopped fine
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • 1 red pepper chopped fine
  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • 1 can green chillies
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 pkg taco seasoning
  • 4 Bell Peppers (Red, Yellow, Orange or Green – your choice)


Cook ground beef, drain fat, add taco seasoning. Let cool for a few min’s while you cut the tops of the peppers and remove the inner membranes (a melon baler works great for this). Coat the peppers in a bit of olive oil and roast upside down in a 450 oven for 10-15 min’s. While the peppers are roasting, mix the cooked ground beef with the rest of the ingredients. Let peppers cool for just a few so you can easily handle them. Turn peppers right side up place in a roasting pan and fill with 1 cup mix and top with shredded cheese. Bake for 15-20 min.

These freeze great stuffed as is or I often times make up the mix use a few peppers for dinner that night then freeze the rest of the mix in 1-2 cup portions and save for when peppers are on sale. This also works well for lettuce wraps, tacos or stuffed cabbage leaves.

Hi, I'm Shane, aka Hungry Dad. I'm as busy as everyone these days and my two boys just add to that. I hate when we have to eat out and love to come home and have a home cooked meal with the family after a rough day. But who has the time, right? Well, with a lot of trial and error we found a bunch of great, easy to make recipes that can be made in bulk and freeze well. This means we can have home cookin' in about the same time as making a box of mac and cheese. Convenient and yummy!
