Try a New Recipe Thursdays - Stuffed Peppers

Need a hearty meal to warm you up on cool fall evenings? Try making these yummy, healthy, stuffed peppers. I recieved this recipe during a kitchen/cooking shower that was thrown for me by friends of my mom almost two years ago now and it continues to be one of my favorite week night go-tos. It is also a great way to use leftover ground beef and/or rice.

1 lb. cooked ground beef (or ground turkey)
1 cup cooked brown rice (1/2 cup uncooked)
1/2 small onion, browned
1 packet taco seasoning
4-6 green peppers (depending on how large they are)
1 cup tomato sauce
shredded cheddar cheese

Wash and core peppers, removing seeds and membranes. Mix together cooked beef, rice and browned onion with taco mix (if you don't have leftover beef, you can brown the beef with the onion). Fill peppers and place in baking dish. Poor tomato sauce over the tops of the peppers. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle cheese over top. Bake for 5 more minutes or until the cheese melts. Enjoy - the picture at the top shows my last batch of yummy stuffed peppers!
