Mini Stuffed Peppers

Like their full-sized cousins, these mini stuffed peppers are juicy, flavorful, and as healthy as you care to make them. This is a very simple version, stuffed with a mix of seasoned ground beef, onions, and rice. Roasting them on the fire adds a smoky flavor that really complements the sweetness of the peppers.

Ingredients:

  • 9 mini sweet peppers
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup rice, cooked

Directions:

  1. Cook ground beef and onion over medium heat until beef is nearly browned.
  2. Add garlic, cumin, salt and pepper and continue cooking until beef is cooked through.
  3. Stir rice into beef mixture, remove from heat.
  4. Mini Stuffed PeppersCut the top off of each mini pepper, remove the seeds and membrane, and rinse.
  5. Stuff each pepper with the beef and rice mixture and replace pepper top.
  6. Skewer the peppers from the bottom all the way through the top to keep everything together.
  7. Grill over medium heat, turning to grill each side evenly until peppers are soft and stuffing is heated through.
