Two years ago, I would have agreed with your DW and nothing you could do would get me to touch a stuffed pepper. Now, can't get enough of em!

Pateince and she will come around one of these days... unless she has a sick reaction or is allergic to green peppers LOL.

Mexican-style Stuffed Peppers

4 medium sweet bell peppers
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped carrot
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup cooked rice
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
14 ounces tomato or pasta sauce of choice

-Cut tops from peppers; discard seeds and membranes.
-Chop enough of the tops to make 1/2 cup. In lightly oiled skillet, cook beef, chopped peppers, onion, carrot, and garlic, until no longer pink.
-Remove from heat and drain fat, if any. Stir in rice, seasonings, salt, 1/2 cup tomato sauce.
-Spoon evenly into peppers.
-Place upright in shallow baking dish, large enough to hold peppers in single layer and pour remaining sauce around peppers.
-Cover tightly and bake at 350F. for 45-50 minutes or until peppers are tender-crisp.

I realize this might have to be moved.
Thanks!!

I am alone again for supper as DH was called into work. Was planning the extra crispy fried chicken made with kettle chips but will now safe that for his next day off. Also, I am supposed to keep my leg up more than down for the next few days so I am trying to decide between ordering pizza or sticking popcorn in the microwave!

If she has a reaction to green peppers or just doesn't like them, then stuff yellow or red. Once I did that DH started loving stuffed peppers!

She doesn't like cooked green bell peppers. I'm not sure if I could get away with using red or yellow, she's pretty smart...

Yellow and red peppers taste different cooked than green do, honest. They are all I ever use now. We are a green-pepper free household

We had Thai-Style Peanut Noodles with scallions, red pepper, etc.
