Stuffed Bell Peppers are a great way to enjoy summer’s favorite veggie. These bell peppers are stuffed a delicious cheesy ground beef and rice mixture that your family is sure to love!
Is there a difference between bell peppers?
Yes, there is (: While all the colors of the bell peppers can come from the same plant, there are differences. The biggest difference is the taste and nutrition of between colors. Red peppers are the sweetest, followed by orange then yellow, then ending on green. All the bell peppers have similar mild heat.
Are green bell peppers unripe red peppers?
Yes. Red bell peppers are the mature version of the green bell pepper that grows on the bell pepper plant. Yellow and orange bell peppers fall in between the green and red peppers in maturity. That being said there is nothing wrong with green bell peppers and it is more a matter of your personal tastes of what peppers you use in this recipe.
How do I get my peppers to turn red?
Sweet peppers usually do not continue to ripen once you pick them off the plant or buy them from the store. This means you should buy the bell peppers that you want from the store and not to expect them to change as they wait on the counter.
Can I eat any leftover stuffing?
Yes, you can, but you’ll need to return the skillet to the heat and cook until the corn is heated through and the ground beef is completely cooked through.
