The news in Texas is showing the before and after pictures of forests and ranches blackened by wild fires. Tonight I am going to share my recipe for ranch-style Stuffed Green peppers. Many Bell peppers were picked up at Saturday am Market this past Saturday in downtown Conroe.
To start I halved 3 Fresh green peppers removing the stem and seeds and placed them in a baking dish with 1/4 cup of fridge veg juice . I always search my fridge for left over veg juice before turning on the water faucet. For the meat filling I started with 1/2 lb. ground beef, 2 C of cooked rice, 1 C Ranch dressing,1/2 C of sliced Spanish onion chopped and a mix of minced mini Bell peppers. After mixing all this up I stuffed the pepper halves and let them sit covered in the fridge for several hours. I located a thick Tomato based sauce in my fridge that I poured over the peppers before baking them for 40 min. at 350 F.
Stuffed Green peppers is one of those entrees that taste better the next day. Over the next few days I will share how they turned out. In the meantime, the wife decided to try the Blueberry Banana Nut bread late last night. And she asked for it again for breakfast this morning. I sliced a square; serving open faced for her. Microwaved for 40 sec. and placed Butter patties on them before presenting it to her.Two meals back to back she must have loved it.
