Looking to make some stuffed peppers, never made them before, but I know the basic idea. Looked up a few recipies, but curious what tricks TCG has up its sleeve. Let me hear it!

I'm planning on using some ground beef, some chorizo and some Zing Zang bloody mary mix.

Stuffed peppers are pretty easy and forgiving. Main thing to take into consideration is avoiding burning the peppers where they touch the baking pan. If you have an oven safe wire rack on the baking pan, that will prevent the burn and cook the peppers more evenly.

Now I have to buy peppers... :smile:

Pretty straight forward. Cut peppers in half long ways, clean and stuff with whatever you want. Top with whatever you want. Dump "sauce" over and back at 350 until meat is done.

We normally do rice, peas and a meat; be it ground chicken, turkey, deer or a mix of something. Lamb and beef are good.

Dump tomato sauce over and bake.

Surprisingly hard to find a pic of a rack that I can link. What's so special about baking rack pics?

Anyways, something like this will help prevent bottom burn. If you put foil on the pan and the rack on top of that, you will cut your clean up in half.

That's a good idea!

We have topped them with cheese. but never put it in the bottom.

I was looking at sweet peppers but the jalapenos were calling me. Decided to do bacon wrapped Cream cheese and cheddar cheese filled jalapenos instead.

We've always filled the bottom of the pan with water to prevent burning.
That's better than setting the peppers on the bottom of the pan but I think that using the rack does a better job of crisping up the bottoms since it allows hot air flow to get to the bottoms. Your method is a type of braising which should also work well and may keep more moisture in the peppers.

I use corning ware dishes, works pretty good. Instead of regular rice I use long grain wild rice. Sauce is pretty key, hunts tomato suave with herbs that I Doctor up with some more oregano, basil, garlic and onions.

One of my favorite dinners!

There's actually a recipe for stuffed peppers on the pampered chef website to use this baker and put it in the microwave.

Oh and I always seem to use red and yellow peppers. Just not a fan on eating the green peppers but that's just me.
