This is another installation of the feed family of four for under $10. This week we’re doing stuffed peppers. Everyone in the world has a recipe and you can do all these things a million different ways so feel free to do it your own way.
Brown Rice $1.50
6 Red Peppers @0.99/lb $3.25
1/2 pound ground Sirloin $1.75
Half Can of Chunky Veg Tomato Sauce $0.50
Italian Seasoning Mix $0.20
Small Onion $0.25
Garlic Clove $0.10
Grated Cheese $1.00
Lettuce chopped $1.00
Oil & Vinegar Dressing: $.35
I browned the ground beef along with the onion. Tossed in the garlic, seasoning, sauce and cooked brown rice. Makes a soggy price and beef mix. Stuffed them into peppers that had been cored and duked into boiling hot water for 3-5 minutes. Added a small sprinkle of cheese to the top. Put the tops back on and placed them in a glass baking dish. Added a small amount of water to the pan to keep from scorching and put foil over the top. Baked the peppers at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes and viola! Stuffed peppers! I added the chopped lettuce with oil & vinegar to the side and that was dinner. Healthy, fast and cheap. One of us had 2 peppers but that can be forgiven.
Another way to do this is by putting your left overs from another meal in the peppers. I’ve had everything from Mexican style with beans and rice with chopped up grilled steak to what I like to call the fake lasagna with ricotta cheese and shredded lasagna pasta sheets. I had cooked to many for a lasagna. If you have left overs sitting in your fridge and not sure what to do with them do yourself a favor and toss them into a pepper. Plus, they’re so cute!
