Since I’ve been a bad blogger recently and haven’t been able to do any episodes of Cooking With My Misadventurous Kids I decided to give y’all a recipe that will knock your socks off!
I’ve always loved Stuffed Peppers, and while I love my mother’s recipe I always longed for more pizzazz so I decided to kick things up a few notches and come up with my own recipe. Enjoy!
4 Medium to Large Green Peppers
1 lb. ground beef
1 Box of Dirty Rice Mix (Zatarran’s has an awesome Dirty Rice Mix)
1 Can of Sloppy Joe Mix
2 small cans (about 2 cups) Tomato Juice
S&P to taste
Boil 5 quarts of water in a large soup pot. Wash and cut the tops off of green peppers, and then clean the insides. When water comes to a boil add salt and place peppers into boiling water, blanch peppers for 6-8 minutes (do not overcook). While the peppers are blanching brown 1 lb. of ground beef in a medium pan. When ground beef is brown add Dirty Rice Mix and water and prepare as directed. After 6-8 minutes remove peppers from the boiling water and run under cold water, drain well, and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl add 1 can of Sloppy Joe mix, 2 cups of Tomato Juice, and Salt and Pepper to taste. When Dirty Rice is finished cooking place mixture into large mixing bowl and add half of the Sloppy Joe mix, incorporate well. Stuff peppers with meat mixture and spoon remaining sauce over the tops of peppers, top with green pepper tops, cover with aluminum foil, and bake in preheated oven for 25-35 minutes!
