  • 1.5 lbs lean ground beef
  • 3 shallots (or 1 small onion) diced finely
  • 4 cloves garlic minced finely
  • 200 grams mushrooms diced finely
  • 4-5 tbsp strained tomatoes
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 6 tops of bell peppers diced finely
  • 1 tbsp chili flakes
  • 6 bell peppers tops cut off, seeds removed
  • salt & pepper
  • shredded cheese


  • Pre-heat oven to 350F and bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil.
  • Cut off the tops of your bell peppers (save the tops!) and remove the seeds inside the bell peppers. Set aside until the water has boiled.
  • Dice up the tops of the bell peppers, shallots, garlic, and mushrooms. (note I'm using shallots because that's what I personally had on hand. If you have a small onion, that works too!)
  • Once the water has boiled and you're done dicing everything, put the bell peppers in and let them boil for around 5 minutes, until they've soften. Leave them on a rack to dry once they're done.
  • While the bell peppers are boiling, grab your skillet and on medium-high heat, start browning your ground beef (season with salt and pepper).
  • Once the beef has browned, mix in the diced bell peppers, mushrooms, shallots, garlic, chili flakes, and the strained tomatoes. After 3-5 minutes, stir in your rice.
  • When everything is cooked, start stuffing your bell peppers. I layered some cheese in the middle of the bell peppers as well as on top before placing them in the oven to bake for 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes or once your cheese as melted and browned a little, they're ready to be served.
