Unemployed Cooking: Stuffed Bell Peppers

Posted by kathleenerindavis on April 12, 2010

I spent $100 at the grocery store on Friday. That’s a lot for a single lady living on the dole. Which means that I have a lot of cooking plans. It started pretty simply with Stuffed Bell Peppers on Friday night. I made this for Mark and I and we both ate two stuffed peppers each (which equals one full pepper) so plan amounts accordingly for how many peeps you plan to serve.

Here’s the recipe:

Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Cook Time: 20 Minutes

Ready In: 35 Minutes

Servings: 3


3 Bell Peppers (Red, Yellow, Green)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 (about 6 ounces) package vegetarian burger


3/4 cup Spanish rice

1 (1.25 ounce) package chili seasoning


1/2 cup shredded pepperjack cheese


1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Slice the Bell Peppers in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and stems. Place cleaned peppers in boiling water; cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Drain. Cook rice as directed.
3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Stir in vegetarian crumbles and chili seasoning mix. Cook, stirring, until crumbles are hot, about 5 minutes, remove from heat, mix rice in.

Fill the cooked peppers; top with pepperjack cheese. Arrange stuffed peppers on a baking sheet.

4. Place peppers in preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.
