How To Make Skillet Stuffed Peppers with Rice

BROWN HAMBURGER   Start with one pound of hamburger and brown it in a skillet with onion and garlic.

ADD RICE    Drain the fat then add in some uncooked rice, diced tomatoes, diced bell peppers and plenty of spices.

BRING TO BOIL   Add in the beef broth, then bring the mixture to a boil.

I used a fire roasted diced tomatoes for this recipe, which I think brought out some great flavors. If you don’t have those on hand, you can definitely use regular diced tomatoes.

ADD SEASONINGS   Stir in a little tomato paste along with some Italian herbs to give the broth a little more body and depth of flavor.

Tips for Making Stuffed Peppers in a Skillet:

  • Make sure you bring the skillet to a boil before reducing the heat to a simmer and covering with a lid. If you skip that step it will take much longer to cook the rice fully.
  • Add any color of pepper to the skillet that you like or have on hand. My favorites are red and green.
  • SWAP ground beef with ground turkey or chicken if desired.
  • Using minute rice with this recipe would require changing the amount of liquid and rice called for. Minute rice needs a 1:1 ratio of rice to liquid, so keep that in mind if you’re changing the rice in this recipe.
