Recipe for stuffed bell peppers with beef

An easy and delicious recipe for stuffed bell peppers with beef, rice, cheese, and spices. This is a great way to make a dinner that’s healthy, easy and unique. We often get our stuffed baked bell peppers with a nice salad on the side such as this green bean salad or our beloved melon salad.  

These baked bell peppers are stuffed with vegetables, ground beef, boiled rice and cheddar that melts on the top. YUM! If you want you can leave out the rice but we do like using them as it makes the stuffed bell peppers more filling. If you have some creme fraiche and fresh parsley in the fridge, you can add that on the top when they come out of the oven to make it even better.

Stuffed bell peppers with melted cheese

Stuffed bell peppers with melty cheese is a filling, healthy (except for the cheddar which isn’t a lot), yummy and easy thing to make. You can also put them on the grill instead of in the oven. Grilled vegetables are so good and has a bit of a summer vibe to them!

You can also experiment with other types of stuffing. We’ve once made our stuffed bell peppers with a mix of veggies, chicken and cream cheese. Another thing we like doing is if we have leftover meat/sauce after making something like spaghetti bolognese or chili sin carne, you can use that as the stuffing for some baked stuffed bell peppers. Super easy and a nice way to make multiple different meals out of the same base. So stuffed bell peppers are a great way to avoid food waste or generally just to use the same ingredients to make something totally different.
