  • Author: Bobby
  • Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 6 green bell peppers
  • salt ( to taste)
  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1/3 cup onion (chopped)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1 (14.5 ounces) can whole peeled tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup uncooked rice
  • A ½ cup of water
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 (10.75 ounces) cans condensed tomato soup
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cut the tops off the green peppers. Remove the seeds and place the peppers into the boiling water and boil for 5 minutes. Drain and sprinkle salt inside each pepper. Set aside.


  1. In a large skillet over medium, heat-high add ground beef and onions. Cook for 5 minutes or until the beef is browned. Drain off any excess fat and season the beef with salt and pepper. Stir in chopped tomatoes, rice, a ½ cup of water, and Worcestershire sauce. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the rice is tender. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Stuff each pepper with the beef and rice mixture, and place peppers open side up in a baking dish. In a medium bowl combine tomato soup with just enough water to make the soup a gravy consistency. Pour the soup over the peppers.
  3. Cover and place into the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 35 minutes. During the last few minutes of cooking, uncover and top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Finishing baking until the cheese has melted.

  1. Made these last week with my Mom, whose recipe is in her head, haha. Your recipe looks like a keeper! Thanks for posting.

  2. Hi Bobby,
    I recently discovered your blog and am very impressed with both the recipes (clear and concise) and the accompaning photos (stunning visuals). I made the stuffed bell peppers following the recipe exactly (well, except for forgetting to salt inside the bell peppers after boiling…) and they were delicious! Thanks for sharing.


  3. I tried this recipe because stuffed green peppers are my brother-in-laws favorite dinner. This is a great recipe. I made them for his birthday. Wouldn’t change this recipe a bit!!

  4. IN the middle of making it now. I have no doubt they will taste great. Added a sprinkle of garlic salt to it though.
