This has become a staple in my house and it’s courtesy of @bethenny aka Bethenny Frankel of RHONY and now Bethenny Ever After. I think she rocks in general. The recipes on her site are really really good.
Here is a link to her recipe…I made a few adaptations that she would have encouraged. One of her motto’s is “use what you have”.
First, take a knife and cut the top and bottom off of your peppers. These green peppers looked so good at the store this week I couldn’t pass them up.
Oh and you should heat the oven to 400.
Next chop up those tops and bottoms, and throw them in a pan with a pound of ground turkey (or whatever meat you want) and a chopped onion.
I wait until the turkey is almost cooked to add the other ingredients like 2 cups of tomato sauce (i used jarred marinara from TJ’s), Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, chopped thyme and garlic salt.
I also cheated by using a microwavable brown rice and quinoa package. 90 seconds. Hot. Add it in.
It’s going to end up looking yummy like this…
So get to stuffing those peppers. She calls for feta cheese in the recipe…but I didn’t have that much so instead I just put on the top.
Cook for 30 minutes at 400. YUM!
Note: I started putting foil on the pan because the runoff was a killer to get off my pans! Also, I was able to stuff these two peppers and still have some left over. I’ve also made double batches and frozen it for later use.
