and topped with cheese.

I have also made these without the rice and served with pasta. I love it when I can mix ingredients up and change up a recipe. These are so economical when ground beef and peppers are on sale. I have not calculated how much they are but when made with rice these baked bell peppers with cheese are pennies to make.

I got the original recipe from Betty Crocker in one of my early cookbooks. Since then I have updated these and added some spices to ramp up the flavor

I am alone in my love for stuffed peppers in this house, which is why I never make them. But your photos have my mouth watering, so I think I need to start!
