Stuffed bell peppers are one of my favorite meals. I also love the Mexican stuffed peppers known as chiles rellenos. This whole week I was supposed to be taking a break from the kitchen and use it to focus on my blog but obviously I couldn’t resist. We bought a bunch of freezer meals so I could relax a little which is something I rarely do. Stuffed peppers was actually one of those frozen meals. While they’re actually pretty good in a pinch all it did was make me crave the stuffed peppers I make for my family. So now I am enjoying a delicious homemade stuffed bell pepper. The frozen ones don’t even come close to how good these are.
I prefer to buy tall peppers so that I can stuff them with more of the filling but the grocery didn’t have the best selection. But that’s ok the smaller ones work fine.
I personally love the green bell peppers but you can use whatever you prefer most. Just make sure you get peppers that are even on the bottom so they don’t fall over.
I like my peppers to still have a little crunch when they’re done. You should bake it anywhere from 20-30 minutes depending on how soft you like your peppers. There will be some leftover filling after stuffing the peppers. I like to have extra to spread around the peppers. Just one of these peppers fills up my husband! And he is the type to always get seconds. This means we get to have some for lunch the next day. I always try to cook meals that will last for two days so I’m not constantly in the kitchen. I hope you will try these as they are so delicious. Don’t be afraid to change them up a little. They are very adaptable!
