From the Chef: I love eating something in a vessel that can then itself be eaten, like a bread bowl or an ice cream cone. This is a fun all-in-one meal that can be sliced up and devoured without leaving a trace, or extra dishes, behind. Simply sauté, stuff, bake, and eat!

  2. In a large skillet, cook the beef over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring to break up clumps. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes until the onion is translucent. Drain the meat mixture and return the pan to the heat. Add the tomatoes, corn 2 cups of the stuffing mix, the cilantro, and salt and stir well.

roasted garlic

Salt , pepper ketchup is all I add

I just add the usual spices like salt, black pepper, onion, and Worchester Sauce.

I have to say this is a great stuffed pepper recipe may have to try it thanks

I make stuffed peppers with a European influence, so I like to add spices like caraway seeds , marjoram, and lots of garlic, of course.

I've made stuffed peppers with so many kinds of filling, I can't tell you what all. We've tried plain old salt and pepper and onion. We love the Italian seasoning mix. We really enjoy Mexican flavors, especially with extra cheese on top.

I love the twist of using stuffing mix instead of rice that this Stuffed Peppers recipe offers. The recipe is well written and easy to follow, and the ingredients are things you have on hand so there is no reason to not whip up this tasty dish for dinner tonight. The cilantro and parmesan cheese add a great depth of flavor.
