Stuffed Pepper Bowl

The husband and I both like stuffed peppers, I just don’t like the fuss that comes with making them. So I thought I’d try to find an easier way to have the flavors from a stuffed pepper in a easier to make form. This is what I came up with. I could see this being great when you have left over rice or you could make twice the amount of rice called for and use the leftovers the next day to make fried rice. I like to add some garlic powder and onion powder to the rice while it’s cooking. It gives it just a little more flavor without extra calories or sodium.


2 cups cooked rice
1/2 pound extra lean ground beef
3 cloves of garlic
1 cup chopped onions
2 red peppers, diced
1 can no sodium diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon basil


In a large pan, cook the ground beef, onions and garlic. Add the red peppers and cook for three minutes or until slightly softened. Add the can of tomatoes, rice and basil. Cook for a few more minutes, until most of the liquid has been cooked off.
