no prep time everything can be prepared while cooking.
Cook time: 30-40 min
What you will need:
- 5 -8 Green Bell Peppers
- 1 lb hamburger meat
- 1 can re-fried beans
- 1 package taco seasoning, original, mild, medium, spicy, whatever you like. I use spicy.
- 1/2 onion diced to cook in meat.
- 1 box Spanish Rice (Rice a Roni)
- 2 tbs butter
- 1 cup water
- 1 can Mexican style Rotel
- 1 package 8 oz cream cheese
- 1 bag of shredded Mexican 4 cheese blend
- 1 tomato diced for topping
- lettuce chopped for topping
- 1/2 Onion diced for topping
- Sour cream, jalapeno, salsa etc whatever else you like as toppings
Start with cooking Spanish Rice in large skillet. First saute on medium heat with two tbs butter until Vermicelli is golden brown. While rice sautes:
Cut the tops of Green Bell Peppers off and take the seeds out rinse off place them in a pot half full of water and boil over medium heat when water boils boil for ten min.
After rice sautes add 1 cup of water, 1 can of Mexican style Rotel, and the Spanish rice seasoning mix that came in box of Spanish rice. Stir and bring to boil reduce heat and let simmer 20 min. While rice simmers:
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Start cooking 1 lb hamburger meat in medium skillet. While cooking the meat cut 1 onion into diced pieces and place 1/2 of the diced onion into the hamburger meat. Place other 1/2 of diced onion into a container for toppings. dice up one tomato, some lettuce and place your other toppings on counter in a line to set up for when ready. Once hamburger meat is completely brown then add taco seasoning let cook on medium heat for 5 min. while meat cooks 5 min longer:
Drain Green bell peppers as they should be ready at this time, place into glass baking pan to cool off. Then mix hamburger meat, 1 can re-fried beans, and 1 8 oz package of cream cheese into the Spanish rice. let cook for 5 min. while mixture is cooking:
cut Bell peppers in half and then place mixture into each half. Sprinkle with shredded Mexican 4 cheese blend, then place in oven and let bake for 5 min.
whatever mixture is left if any can be used as a chip dip. I like Cool Ranch Doritos myself but, you can use anything.
