Tips for Making the Best Stuffed Peppers

1.  Leftovers are welcome! This was a dish that came to be as a means of using up leftover everything, so don't be shy! Whatever combination of starches, proteins, sauces, etc., you feel like combining will usually work. We'd recommend white or brown rice, ground beef, tomato sauce, and shredded Mexican blend cheese if you've never made this dish before, as this recipe is a classic, but dare to be bold.

2.  Par-cook your peppers. What does par cook mean, you ask? Great question! Par-cooking refers to the technique of partially cooking foods with the intent to cook them the rest of the way later on in the preparation. There are two main reasons for doing this. First, it allows the food to be prepared ahead of time and second, the food can be quickly heated prior to serving.

3. Decide how to use your tops. Some recipes will suggest you keep the tops of your peppers to use as lids, but we'd recomend dicing up your pepper tops and throwing them into your filling mixture. Doing this, you will keep your peppers from overcooking or drying out by allowing moisture to escape.

4. Make ahead. Stuffed peppers can be stuffed and refrigerated up to 1 day in advance. If you choose to prepare them ahead of time, add 10 minutes to your total baking time.

5. Storing your leftovers. Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will keep refrigerated for up to 4 days.

I love stuffed peppers! The ones I've made in the past have been pretty traditional - ground beef, rice, tomato sauce, so I'm loving all of these new ideas on here. The Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers look especially awesome.

YAS! I love stuffed peppers, all of these recipes look delicious. One year, my roommate and I made our stuffed peppers into jack o lanterns and before stuffing baking them into deliciousness.
