Mary’s Stuffed Peppers

I was sent this message the other day. “I have a great recipe for stuffed peppers. How about we come over and make it at your house and drink sangria?” How in the world do you say no to that proposal? Someone wants to come over make me food and bring tasty wine? Uh why hasn’t this happened sooner? Hehe. Well Mary did come over. She brought delicious food and wine. It was a great time. It felt strange to do nothing but take pictures and drink, but it was worth it!

Below is her recipe and a few of my comments.

Stuffed Bell Peppers

1lb of ground beef
2 TBS minced garlic
2 TBS Basil
2 TBS Oregano
2 TBS Onion Powder
1 TBS Chili Powder
1 TBS Paprika
2 large bell peppers
1 medium white onion, chopped
1 medium zucchinni, chopped
6 small mushrooms, chopped
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 small can of tomato sauce
1 cup of parsley, chopped

Mix ground beef with half of the garlic, basil and oregano, all of the onion powder, chili powder, parsley, and paprika.

Cut the tops and bottoms off of the bell peppers, strip of seeds and membrane and slice into thick rings. You should get two rings from one large bell pepper.

You can cut up the tops and bottoms to saute in with the onion for the sauce, but if my kids are around, I just give it to them.

These kids loved veggies! I’ve never seen kids fight over peppers and guacamole.

Stuff the meat mixture into the peppers.

Put in a hot pan with olive oil to sear on both sides, and load into a baking dish.

Glass works best.

Get them as close to each other as possible. Saute the onion in olive oil until clear.

You can use the same pan. Add the zucchini and mushrooms and saute for a few minutes. Mushrooms will be soft and the squash may start to brown a little. Add the remaining seasoning and tomato products and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for a few minutes, pour on top of the peppers, and bake at 425 for about thirty minutes.

You should be able to cut the peppers with a fork when they’re done.

This was a super tasty meal and so pretty!
