Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb Italian Sausage
  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 10 oz Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies 1 can
  • 1 onion medium sized - chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 6 bell peppers
  • 1 cup rice raw
  • 2 cups Mexican blend shredded cheese divided
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper

Instructions

  • Get the rice cooking. Brown the sausage and ground beef and season to taste.
  • Cut the tops off of the bell peppers and use a spoon to remove seeds and veins as much as possible. Dice up the usable parts of the bell pepper tops and one medium onion.
  • In a clean pan, saute onions and peppers until onions are translucent and soft, about 6-8 minutes. Add garlic and continue to saute for 4-5 more minutes.
  • Combine Rotel Diced Tomatoes, ground beef and sausage mixture, onion and pepper mixture, and rice in a a large bowl.
  • Stir to combine all ingredients.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups of cheese to mixture and stir to combine.
  • Drizzle olive oil inside the bell peppers and season with salt and pepper. Stuff peppers with mixture and place in a greased 8x8 baking dish. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of cheese over the tops of the peppers and cover with foil.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and then remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes. The cheese should be nice and bubbly!
