Definitely a 5 star recipe! Just enough spice to keep it interesting. I used 2% cottage cheese instead of sour cream. It works really well. Served with niblets corn. Lovely meal thanks Kitten..

  How to Make
 
 

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.

Step 2

Slice each pepper half lengthwise, leaving the stems intact. Remove the seeds and ribs.

Step 3

Heat olive oil in a skillet to medium heat. Add onions, cook for about 2-3 minutes. Next add the ground beef and garlic, salt and pepper. Cook about 10 minutes or until beef if lightly browned.

Step 4

In a separate bowl mix salsa with cooked rice, sour cream and green onions. Add the ground beef mixture and combine thoroughly. Stuff the mixture into each pepper.

Step 5

Place the stuffed peppers in a casserole dish, cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

Step 6

Remove the foil, sprinkle each pepper with 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Return to oven bake uncovered for 15 more minutes.
