Unstuffed Any Color Pepper Casserole

You can make this casserole with any kind of pepper, from sweet red or green bell to sweet Italian frying, to poblanos, or any combination depending on preference and taste.  I like this recipe because it is so easy to make a full meal!

  • 2-3 cups cooked rice
  • 2 cups sweet (any color) or Poblano peppers, chopped
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound ground meat (I used beef)
  • 24 oz tomato sauce
  • 1+ cup more of thinly sliced peppers
  • 1-2 cups grated cheese of choice (I have used cheddar + parmesan or mozzarella)

Brown meat with peppers, onion, salt, and pepper. Add tomato sauce and rice. Mix well. Line casserole with sliced peppers. Pour in meat mixture. Put cheese on top. Bake at 350 until heated through and cheese is browning a little. Serve hot.
