Servings: 6 to 8 servings
Prep Time: 1 hour
Cook Time: 1 hour 30 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 cup tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup Old El Paso cheese and salsa
1 cup cooked rice
2 teaspoon Paula Deen’s House Seasoning
2 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
2   garlic cloves, minced
1   medium onion, chopped
1/2 lb ground pork
3/4 lb ground chuck
4   large red bell peppers
1/2 cup green onion tops, chopped
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 cup hot water





Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Start by cutting the peppers in half lengthwise, leaving the stems intact, and halving them also.  Remove the seeds and ribs inside the peppers.

Using a hot skillet, saute the ground beef, pork, onion, garlic, 1 teaspoon of bouillon granules, and House Seasoning together.  Saute well until onions become translucent.  Drain the fat off.  Add the rice, cheese, sour cream, tomatoes, green onion tops, and soy sauce.  Mix well and stuff the mixture into the peppers.  In a small bowl, mix the hot water and the remaining bouillon granules.  Pour this mixture into a shallow casserole large enough to hold all of the peppers.  Place the stuffed peppers in the dish, cover with foil and bake for 25 to 35 minutes.  Remove the foil and spoon the juice from bottom of the casserole over the top of the peppers.  Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.

really enjoyed these! i did tweak the recipe some. i added a handful of toasted pinenuts,and i used four pieces of bacon. i don't know what old el paso cheese and salsa is, so where it says that, i used a handful of shredded cheddar/jack mix; where it said tomatoes, i used fresh salsa. making this one again!
