Stuffed Peppers

HOW TO MAKE THE EASIEST & BEST STUFFED PEPPERS - 12/23/22    by Momma K aka Debbie - John Houk   

               (Below Recipe makes enough for 4 large stuffed peppers.)

My wife Debbie never gets enough credit, but she truly is a good cook and a saint for putting up with the likes of me!  Stuffed Peppers is one of my favorite dishes of hers for sure!  I always hope there will be at least one stuffed Pepper left over so I can consume it cold early the next morning for breakfast!!  Mmmmmm Mmmmmm my taste buds are drooling!


1 Pound of ground peppers - 80/20 ground beef mix works great.

1 Package of 2.0 oz dried onion soup mix.

1 cup of precooked rice. Brown or White- Brown I am told is better for diabetics.

1 cup of water.

1 - 10.5 oz can of tomato soup and 1 can of water. Can’t go wrong with Campbell soup.

Cheddar cheese-shredded 

4 large fresh red or green peppers or both.  I do love the sweetness of the fresh Red peppers.

Hungarian Smoked Paprika - 1 to 2 tablespoons

Salt & Pepper

Optional item to add to the beef rice mixture!!!!!!

     Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning! Game changer in my book!!!!  You decide how much!

     In a medium sauté pan, brown the ground beef, and poor of the fat leaving a small amount in.  Add dried onion soup mix, rice, pepper, two tablespoons of paprika, salt and 1 cup of water.  Cook for about 5 to 10 minutes.

     In a separate pot deep pot filled with boiling water add the peppers which have had the seeds and top removed so it resembles a cup where you mixture will be placed.  Boil peppers for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove and let drain and cool a bit.  Stuff the peppers evenly with the Beef rice mixture.  Place in a ceramic of glass casserole pan with a lid. A 9 by 9 size works great for four large peppers.  Do not waste any beef mixture if I have leftover I sprinkle it over the top and then add the cheese.

     Open can of soup and mix in a bowl with 1 cup of water.  Pour over peppers.  Top with shredded cheddar cheese.  Bake at 350 for about a half hour.  Temp and make sure you have reached 165.  Let dish sit covered for a 15 minutes and then dive in!  Be careful this is truly a hot dish and I am sure you don’t want to be burn your mouth as you wait impatiently like I for this wonderful goodness!.
