DIRECTIONS

  • Combine beef, onion, seasoning mix and egg in a large bowl.
  • Add rice and mix well.
  • Cut peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and membrane.
  • Spread tomatoes on the bottom of an ovenproof 12 X 9 inch baking dish. The liquid from the tomatoes will reduce during cooking so if (like me) you like lots of sauce, add about a cup of water. This also helps make the peppers softer.
  • Place peppers, cut side up, on top of the tomatoes.
  • Spoon beef mixture into peppers, mounding as necessary.
  • Top each pepper with salsa.
  • Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 40-45 minutes or until beef is cooked thoroughly and peppers are soft.
  • Cover each pepper with cheese and return to oven, under the broiler, until the cheese melts- less than a minute, so watch carefully!
  • Serve with sour cream and additional salsa.
