Wonderful Stuffed Peppers

A friend was kind enough to share one of her recipes with me a few days ago.  I haven't had a chance to try this yet, but it sounds like it would be yummy, and pretty too!

1 1/2 lbs ground chuck or ground turkey
4 cups cooked rice
6 oz can tomato paste
1 small onion diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 peppers (assorted colors - green, red, yellow, orange)

Prepare rice - I like to use my Pampered Chef Rice Cooker.  2 cups rice, 4 cups water, 2 Tbsp butter, 1/2 tsp salt.  Place in microwave and cook on high for 10 minutes.  Cook 15 minutes longer at 50% power.  Perfect rice every time.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Brown ground chuck or turkey with onion and garlic in pan on stove top.  Drain well.  Add tomato paste and rice and stir while simmering.

Wash and cut the tops from your peppers.  Remove the seeds and fibers from the inside of the pepper.

Spoon approximately 1 cup of the meat and rice mixture into each pepper and place into a casserole dish.  Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes.

Easy, delicious and healthy!
