My kids aren't big fans of this dish because all they see is green peppers and tomatoes. But, maybe your kiddos would like the rice/beef mixture or maybe you're even lucky enough to have a child that likes green peppers!
With this dish, the only ingredient that may have gluten, would be the spanish rice, so make sure to buy a gluten-free package/box of rice or make your own using white rice and adding the ingredients below.
STUFFED GREEN PEPPERS
1 pd of Ground Beef (or meat of your choice)
1 14.5 oz can of Diced Tomatoes
1 15 oz can of Tomato Sauce
1 Box of Zatarain's Spanish Rice or plain rice, whatever gluten-free rice!
6 Green Peppers
1 C. Shredded cheese of your choice (I used a Mexican Blend)
(You will use some of this cheese to top off peppers after baking)
Step 1: Brown 1 1b of ground beef and follow directions on box of Zatarain's Spanish Rice
Step 2: While waiting for beef to brown and rice to cook, prep green peppers, slice top of peppers and clean out. You need to cover the dish with foil so make sure green peppers are cut short enough to cover.
Step 4: Combine meat and rice
Step 6: Fill the remaining green peppers with rice mixture
Step 8: Bake (COVERED WITH FOIL) @350 for 45 minutes, you want the green peppers to be soft and easy to cut through. Take out of oven, remove foil and top with shredded cheese. Bake for another 5 minutes.
Step 9: ENJOY! These were SO GOOD! It was nice to have something new on the menu. Also, if your kids don't like the green pepper, just stuff 4 green peppers and they can eat the left over beef/rice mixture - it's very flavorful!
