If you are in need of a fabulous meal to serve company, I have one for you! Every time I’ve prepared this meal, it has been given rave reviews. I usually at least double the recipe, even if I only make it for my family. It is an excellent meal to freeze (simply freeze the meat mixture separately from the peppers).
3 large bell peppers (any color, cut in half and seeded)
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/3 cup sliced green onions
1 cup cooked barley
1 cup salsa
1/3 cup shredded carrot (I usually use more!)
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
3/4 cup cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Brown the ground beef with the onions. In the meantime, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the peppers and cook for about 3 minutes. Remove with tongs and let them dry on a towel.
3. Once the meat is cooked, add the remaining ingredients.
4. Transfer peppers to a 9×13 baking dish. Stuff them with the beef filling. Cover and bake for 25-30 minutes, until heated through.
Serve with a salad and enjoy!
This is a great meal if you are in search of recipes using ground beef. It’s easy to get in a rut and this one is a winner!
