STUFFED PEPPERS | stuffed bell peppers recipe + meal prep tips

by CHZ



Stuffed peppers are always a family favorite. This classic version is loaded with ground beef, garlic, onion, tomatoes, spinach, and rice. They’re easy, healthy, filling, and bonus – they make for delicious leftovers or meal prep.

When bell peppers are sliced in half they become the perfect vegetable to stuff with a variety of ingredients. They’re firm enough to hold their shape while cooking, yet soft enough to enjoy sliced up with the filling, for a self-contained complete meal. Enjoy them for lunch or dinner!

This recipe is also endlessly customizable to fit a variety of diets and preferences, so have fun with it! And check out some of my variations on the recipe post below.

Do you prefer a classic stuffed pepper or do you alter it with different ingredients? There really are so many options. And I'm thinking I should share some of the breakfast options you can make with stuffed peppers as well. 😉 xo – Lisa

I tried your method and I like it. I baked my bell peppers just as you did and that accelerates the cooking time when the stuffing is added. I added the spinach also. I saw another video where they added about a cup of corn. That's an idea. Thanks for your video. I appreciate it.

I'm going to try this with Beyond Meat as a vegan alternately.

They came out so good! I like this way because one can get rid of the fat that ground beef renders and you don’t end up with a greasy dish.

Rob Phillips September 21, 2020 - 10:22 am

I'm trying this next week. I'm adding the spinach too!
My friend would add carrot into a lot of meals just to get more veggies in too and it never tasted odd. He would use a cheese grater and shred them (julienned as its called).

OMGoodness! I made these for dinner tonight and they smell amazing, they are beautiful on the platter also. My son grabbed his and devoured it I’m waiting for hubby to get home to eat mine, but I did sneak a bite and mercy they are good! I used ground pork, as we have a pretty good stock of it, I also used a wild rice blend. I didn’t use any green peppers, as I agree the ripe ones are amazing. Thanks for sharing

My husband loved them so much for his lunch I didn't even get to try them! Do you have more dinner/lunch recipes that you can freeze?

I followed your recipe but only had fresh shreaded parmesan cheese on hand. I used the red yellow green and orange peppers……They were delicious.
Thank you for another amazing recipe that easy to make….looking foward to leftovers.

I've wanted to make stuffed bell peppers fo so long and these were sooo good! I'm definitely going to make them again. I just added some tabasco, and a shredded carrot because I forgot to buy spinach. Thank you for this recipe!

I made your recipe 2 day ago. I made the following changes: no cheese on top and no spinach….and it was very good 👍. New recipe added to the family menu 😊😁. Thanks!

The diced tomatoes you use for this recipe is sweet or not ??

Reply
Gabi Huggins September 21, 2020 - 10:22 am

If you don't have fire roasted tomatoes like me, just use reg diced tomatoes and add tomato paste + smoked paprika! It turned out soooo tasty my husband and I were eating the beef + sauce in spoonfuls right out the pan before filling the peppers!

Lesbia Lorenzana September 21, 2020 - 10:22 am

Loved these. Thank you for such an easy recipe. I added some frozen veggies into the stuffing mix and I added about a cup of chicken stock into the pan. We all loved the colors and the flavors. Served them along breaded cauliflower and a simple salad.

Kat M September 21, 2020 - 10:22 am

I made these the other day and they are sooo good! I could have eaten the filling as is. I add 1 tablespoon of molasses because I use cheap, overly acidic canned tomatoes. I will definitely have this on rotation! Might even try a meat free version with lentils or black beans.
