Unstuffed Peppers (One Pot)

Recommended Posts

This is a tried and true family favorite. Freezer-friendly too. :)

 

Unstuffed Peppers

 

2 pounds lean ground beef

2 cups brown rice

4 cups water, broth, or stock

3-4 green, yellow or orange peppers, cut into a large dice

2 (15 oz) cans crushed and/or diced tomatoes

1 tsp dried mustard

1 tsp seasoning salt or salt and paprika mix

8 oz cheddar cheese, shredded or cubed

 

In a large skillet misted with olive oil, brown the ground beef; drain ground beef. Add in all ingredients except cheese; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 50 minutes. Stir in cheese and cover again. Continue cooking until cheese is melted and mixture is heated through and combined.

 

Serves 8 @ 8 points each OR Core if omitting or using fat-free cheese

Ooooooohhh, that sounds yummy! Very stick-to-your-ribs and gooey! :D Paris, when I see your name and picture above a recipe, I automatically assume it's delicious. You're better than the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval! ;)

This is tried and true for us. I grew up eating a fattier, less veggie version of this and IMO the small modification (more peppers, more tomatoes) make it even better. I just bought all the ingredients I need to make it this weekend.

Ok, I've got a slew of bell peppers and tomtoes from my garden. I was planning on making stuffed bell peppers, but I think I'll make UNSTUFFED bell peppers instead.

Paris, this is a wonderful One Pot dish. I love those dishes anyway because they are comfort foods and regardless the lifestyle that one has chosen those are always good to have around. DH loves stuffed peppers so I though this would be an interesting dish... and it was better then interesting, it was wonderful! I did make one change, rather then two cans of tomatos, I used one can of tomatos and one of tomatos and green chiles. I love them and use them in just about everything I use tomatos in.

 

This recipe is a keeper! Thanks for sharing.

I love the sounds of the recipe with one exception, (and I'm a total CHEESE LOVER!!) I think I'll leave the cheese out. Don't know why, but the cheese just doesn't sound good to me. Maybe I'll sprinkle some Parmesan on it when served :)

I love warm and cozy things like this!

Thanks for sharing this great recipe! Definitely gets a five star rating from me. I purposely only made 1/2 the recipe! This is soooooooo much easier than stuffing peppers too!

Well.....IT WAS AWESOME!!!

 

I did make some variations though.....

 

I cut up half an onion and some zuchinni, and some spinach and just put them in a pan and cooked em up a little before I added them to the mixture. I also opted to not add the peppers to the mix because I wanted to actually stuff the green peppers with the mixture, and once I did that I put them in the oven at 450 degrees....and, I sprinkled some low fat cheese on top of it.... it turned out sooooooo good!! My DH absolutely loved it, I loved it...but the kids weren't too crazy about it! So next time, hubby and I will have that, and the kids can have mac and cheese!

 

Also...this recipe makes ALOT...there was plenty left over to freeze...so next time all I have to do is buy a couple of peppers and just stuff em, bake em, and VOILA! Dinner!

Excellent recipe. Changed it slightly by making it with 97% lean ground turkey, using non-fat beef broth, adding one medium sized vidalia onion to brown w/turkey, and seasoning it with 2 T tex-mex chili seasoning instead of salt. Also used diced tomatoes with peppers instead of the plain diced tomatoes. Didn't stir in the cheese but added 1/4 C fat-free cheese as a topping for each bowl. Absolutely delish.....my husband had TWO servings. Thanks Paris.

DB and I both really liked this recipe! Changes I made: threw in some chopped onion and minced garlic with the beef, added some oregano, and I accidentally used only once can of tomatoes, but 2 would have been better!

 

Thanks for a great recipe!

I ate this at a bonfire/party and it was awesome! Everyone loved it, and I was afraid I was blowing my points for the night. The girl who made it said it was WW friendly, and none of us could believe it. I would also add some onion and garlic, possibly some zucchini. Thanks for posting!
