Stuffed Peppers

I have to admit, I never thought I would try stuffed peppers. I'm not a big fan of peppers, but little-by-little, I have started trying them in other recipes and found I like them. But to have the main meal as peppers, I wasn't sure about that...then Hubs said he really likes stuffed peppers, so I got the recipe from my MIL and worked it for the crockpot...

Most of the recipes that I post are recipes that I have had in the past, so I've not had a picture, but for this I was able to take some pictures...As you can see with the ingredients, it was an afterthought to take pictures...grin...

Stuffed Peppers

6 large peppers
1 lb of beef
1 (15 oz) can of corn
1 (10 oz) bag of cooked rice*
1 cup bread crumbs **
2 Tablespoon chopped onion
1 can (26-28 oz) Tomato Soup ***

Cut the top off the peppers and clean out the insides. Mix all other ingredients together (using only about half the tomato soup at this time). Stuff the peppers with your mixture. Put the peppers in the crockpot. Pour the rest of the tomato soup over the peppers. Cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours.

*I like to use the Birdseye Steamfresh rice. You can stick in the microwave and cook it in like 4 minutes while you are getting everything else ready and then just add before mixing.
** you can also use crushed crackers and/or more than the 1 cup depending on how moist you want you want or don't want your stuffing to be.
***I use spaghetti sauce because of the different flavors you can get

You will notice that I am only making 3 stuffed peppers, so I cut the recipe in half since it is just Hubs and me...

Enjoy and Happy Slow Cooking! Hugs....

I never thought to put my stuffed peppers in the crockpot. I might have to do that next time!

I have a great recipe for peppers stuffed with couscous and veggies on my blog if you're looking for another idea!

Oh, I LOVE stuffed peppers! I'll have to give your recipe a try.

BTW -- thanks for the blog award. I'm going to post it after I'm done with my blog tour for A NEW JOB FOR DILLY. It's going on until Saturday. I hope you can drop by some of the tour stops!
