Husband Can Cook

I got real lucky in the husband department for a lot of reasons, but one of them is that homeboy knows his way around a kitchen. He is really good at improvising recipes and I really love it when he cooks. Our most recent favorite is his stuffed peppers (and he uses peppers from the garden). So here it is from him to me to you:

Equipment needed:
Small baking dish (square)
Large skillet
Small sauce pan

1 c white rice
1 lb. ground beef
4-6 Large bell peppers
1-8 oz can of rotell tomatoes
1 half large white onion
1 small can tomato sauce
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbs. cooking oil

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Cook rice normally according to directions. Chop onions into about 2" long pieces. Add 2 tbsp cooking oil to large skillet along with chopped onions and ground beef. Once the beef is browned add 3/4 c rice, can of tomato sauce, and Rotel tomatoes to the skillet.

Cut the tops off of the bell peppers just enough to be able to clean out the seeds and white parts. Put one spoonful of the ground beef mixture and sprinkle a little cheese on top. Continue layering a spoonful of mixture with a sprinkle of cheese until full. Place in small rectangular baking dish with 1/4 c water in the dish. Cook for 25-30 minutes.



  1. Holy cow this looks delicious. What a lucky girl you are! (bell peppers are the one thing my husband doesn't like. Which is a real shame because they're in my top 5.) Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  2. wow wow wow! that looks incredible - i'll take the left overs!

  3. ummm looks fantastic. really i've been wanting to make some. i'm pretty lucky too cause my hubby can cook too and he likes to as well.


  4. you scored in the husband dept indeed! and these peppers are makin my mouth water!

  5. yeah i'll say you did pretty well finding a guy like him. you keep being beautiful and he'll keep making you dinner. ;)

  6. Yep that does look so so good! I love having a husband who's not to shabby in the kitchen either. My hubby even does the dishes, so that's an extra bonus. The only sad thing is he's not a big veggie fan so a recipe like this wouldn't go so well in my house. :( So sad because I'd love to try this!
