If you like stuffed peppers, you will love how easy this Unstuffed Bell Peppers is to make. A classic family favorite deconstructed. My kids love stuffed green peppers, but don’t like to eat the whole peppers, so I came up with this to make it more appealing to my picky eaters.
- 1 pound ground beef
- 3 cups cooked rice
- 1 red bell pepper, chopped
- 1 orange bell pepper, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 2 cups tomato sauce
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
1Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Break ground beef into pieces and add to skillet; cook and stir until about half of the beef is browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir red bell pepper, orange bell pepper, and green bell pepper into the beef; continue to cook and stir until the beef is entirely browned, about 5 minutes more. Drain and discard grease.
2Mix tomato sauce and brown sugar together in a bowl; pour over the beef mixture. Stir rice into the beef mixture and stir; transfer to a 9×13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the mixture.
3Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is bubbling, about 30 minutes. Cool dish 5 minutes before serving.
