INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350º F. Cut tops off peppers and remove seeds. Keep tops if you want to use them as lids when serving.
  • In a large skillet over medium high heat, cook ground beef and pork, breaking it up into small pieces, until the meat is browned. Transfer to a big mixing bowl.
  • Add olive oil to the same skillet, and add onions & finely chopped carrots and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Saute vegetables until tender (about 3 minutes). Add finely chopped zucchini, tomatoes, and tomato sauce and stir well. Finally, add minced/pressed garlic and cooked rice, and stir everything together. Add dry seasonings (oregano, basil, cumin, chili flakes (optional) and salt and freshly ground black pepper).
  • Steam the peppers in a pan with a little water for 3-4 mins – just until slightly softened. Then, place in a baking dish.
  • Spoon stuffing mixture into peppers and bake for 30 minutes at 350 F uncovered.
  • Remove stuffed peppers from the dish, serve warm, and enjoy!
