Stuffed Jack-O-Lantern Bell Peppers
adapted from allrecipes.com
- 6 Orange Bell Peppers
- 1 Pound Hamburger, Browned
- 1 Package Taco Seasoning
- 1/2 Onion, Chopped
- 1/2 Cup Salsa
- 3/4 Cup Shredded Mexican Cheese Blend
- 1 Package Spanish Rice (Make sure to vent before you put it in the microwave!)
- 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
- Salt and Pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 baking dish. Brown hamburger and stir in taco seasoning. In a medium bowl mix together hamburger, onion, salsa, cheese, rice, chili powder, and salt and pepper. Wash the peppers and cut jack-o-lantern faces in the peppers using a pairing knife. Slice off the top of the peppers and scoop out the seeds and cores. Stuff lightly with the beef stuffing and place them in the prepared baking dish so they lean up against each other. Bake for 1 hour until the peppers are tender and the stuffing is cooked through and juicy.
These were so fun to make! Excellent Halloween night dinner!
