A wonderful recipe for classic stuffed bell peppers, that I've been making for my family for over 30 years now! These are always gobbled right up!! Makes great leftovers, too. Do try the easy microwave method for blanching the peppers--it is truly the way to go--soo easy and no big pot to clean up! Note: I use the oven method to bake the stuffed peppers-- but the entire dish can be made, start to finish, in the microwave (which is especially nice in the summertime, when you don't want to heat up your kitchen). I've included both methods. Tip: I sometimes stir in about 1/2 cup of the shredded mozzarella to the stuffing mixture, and sprinkle the stuffed the peppers with the remaining mozzarella before covering and baking. And a good shortcut is to brown the ground beef in a medium saucepan along with the onion, and add the corn and seasonings; transfer to a covered bowl while cooking the rice in the same pan. When the rice is done, simply pour the ground beef mixture in with the rice in the pot, stir in the tomato sauce and you are ready to stuff your peppers. Easy! I hope you enjoy! :D
