Unstuffed Stuffed Peppers

Here is a simple recipe I like to make on the nights dear hubby is at work, since he doesn't care for bell peppers. Z and I love peppers and like a piece in every bite so I decided to chop up the peppers and throw them into a casserole dish. I also freeze my raw peppers and it works perfect for this recipe or regular stuffed peppers. When they are on sale at the store I stock up. Simply cut the tops and wash out. After they are dry pop them into zip-locs whole. When you are ready to use them take them out about an hr before you need them. The moisture from the freezer makes it so you don't need to pre-boil them. I'm also growing some green peppers in my garden and hope to use those soon! OK, on to the recipe.

Unstuffed Stuffed Peppers
(my way)

4 green bell peppers
1lb ground beef
1 can tomato sauce (2 if you like extra, like me!)
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup cooked rice
1 cup shredded cheese
1 tablespoon chopped onions (more to taste & I use dried onions)
dash of salt & pepper if desired

In a large pot boil peppers. Unless you freeze them.
Brown ground beef and saute onions in a large skillet. Add cooked rice (I use a rice cooker), chopped peppers, 1/2 can tomato sauce, worchestershire sauce, half cup cheese & mix well. In a greased medium size baking dish fill with meat/pepper mixture. Pour remaining tomato sauce on top and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 until cheese is melted.
