• Bell peppers (large), washed, topped, and cleaned (as many as you choose)
  • 4 c. cooked rice
  • 24-32 oz. of tomato sauce
  • 1 10 oz. can of diced tomatoes and green chilies (Rotel type)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 medium bell pepper, chopped
  • 1-2 TB chopped/minced garlic
  • Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 lb. ground sausage


Brown ground beef and ground sausage, drain grease. Add seasonings, veggies, diced tomatoes, and tomato sauce. Simmer till veggies are tender. Meanwhile, cook rice and set aside. When meat sauce is done, skim the top of about two cups of tomato gravy and put aside. Add rice in a little at a time to ensure mixture. Stuff peppers and place in large baking dish. Cover with reserved gravy. Bake at 350 for approximately an hour -- or till tops are nice and brown and peppers are tender.
