stuffed peppers.

I made these yummy stuffed peppers today.

Stuffed Peppers
4 large bell peppers
3/4 ground hamburger or turkey
1/2 pound ground pork (optional)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup cooked rice, we like Jasmine rice
1/2 cup jarred cheese and salsa (like a Tostitos brand)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup diced tomatoes (canned work)
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 tablespoon soy sauce
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the tops off the peppers and remove the seeds and ribs inside.

Using a hot skillet, sauté the ground beef, pork, garlic, onion and seasonings.  Drain the fat off.  Add the cooked rice, cheese, sour cream, tomatoes, green onions and soy sauce.  Mix well and stuff the mixture into the peppers.  Place the stuffed peppers in the dish, cover with foil and bake for 25-30 minutes.  Remove the foil and bake an additional 10-15 minutes.

Here is another yummy idea is you have extra bell peppers lying around.  I sliced the peppers into thin slices and then cooked our eggs in them for breakfast.  It gave the eggs a good flavor.
