2 green bell peppers
1/2 - 3/4 pounds ground meat. beef, chicken, turkey, sausage.. whatever you like
3/4cup crushed tomatoes
1/2cup onion, diced
1/4cup bell pepper, diced (see notes below)
S&P (salt and pepper) to taste
1/4cup cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and preheat a skillet over medium heat.
Slice off the tops of the bell peppers and reserve them for future use. Remove the seeds/ribs on the inside and discard. Using a knife, remove the stem from the tops of the bell peppers you just sliced and dice into bite sized pieces.
In a medium skillet, add the ground meat, onions and bell peppers and cook thoroughly (about 8-10 minutes) and season with salt and pepper. Drain the excess fat and place back in the skillet or clean bowl. Add the crushed tomatoes and stir thoroughly. Scoop the mixture into the bell peppers and top with cheese.
In an oven-safe dish, add a tiny bit of water - about 1/4 cup - and place the bell peppers inside and then bake about 40-45 minutes until the peppers have softened.
*Tip* If you want to make a lot of these and freeze them, make it all the way up to where you stuff the peppers then freeze them. When you want to bake these, transfer to an oven-safe dish and immediatley bake. Do not defrost these. Baking times will be longer since it's frozen.
