~ Herb Stuffed Bell Peppers ~

Ground Chuck ~ 3 lbs
Fresh Minced Garlic ~ To your taste
Green Onion ~ 2 to 4
Fresh Oregano ~ 1 tbsp
Fresh Rosemary ~ 1 tbsp
Canned Tomatoes ~ 2 Qt. jars
White Rice ~ 6 to 8 cups
Cheddar Cheese ~ 16 oz pkg
Blanched Bell Peppers ~ 25 cut in half

Blanch the peppers, let them cool while making stuffing.
Brown ground chuck and minced garlic /chopped onion together. Add minced herbs to beef mixture. Add pre-cooked rice and tomatoes to beef , heat thoroughly. Spray or grease baking pan , stuff the peppers with beef mixture. Bake until browned , remove and add cheddar cheese on top. Return to oven and bake until cheese is as brown as you like.

Thought I would share my recipe , although I usually do them different each time I make them. This recipe makes a huge batch , so you may want to down size it some. I froze about 5 meals from this batch. I didn't cook the ones I froze or add cheese , just stuffed them with beef mixture.
I'm really enjoying the fresh herbs , they make a big difference in flavor.

Hope everyone had a great week.

~ Blessings ~
