If you're a fan of those full-sized peppers stuffed with beef and rice, then you're going to love this bite-sized version. Our Stuffed Mini Peppers are perfect for a party snack or friendly get-together 'cause they can be picked up and eaten in just one bite!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 pound extra lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup cooked white rice
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 pound (about 10) mini sweet peppers, cut in half and seeds removed
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat, shredded, Cheddar cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine beef, rice, salsa, onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper; mix well.
  3. Evenly spoon meat mixture into mini peppers. Place on baking sheet and cover with foil.
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until meat is no longer pink. Sprinkle with cheese and bake 3 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.

I can't wait to make these! I always buy the bag of mini sweet gourmet peppers, but can't eat enough fresh ones before they go bad. This will use them up as a meal instead of just dipping into hummus.
