  • 4 bell peppers, any color
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup cooked white rice
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Cut the tops off the bell peppers and remove the seeds and membranes. Place the peppers in a baking dish.

  3. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until browned. Drain any excess fat.

  4. Add the onion, tomatoes, parsley, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and black pepper to the skillet. Cook for 5 minutes, until the onions are softened.

  8. Serve hot and enjoy!
