I have made this meal a few times and after this last time, I have figured out some things that will make it better. Below is the basic recipe. I will explain how to make it as well as list the tweaks I made.
Now the first thing you do is cut off the tops of your peppers and take out the seeds and as much of the ribs as you can. Then put them in a pot of boiling water for about 5 minutes so they are softened a bit. This helps them cook faster once it comes time to put them in the oven.

Next take your meat and cook it until almost done. Drain out the fat and then add your Garlic, Onions, Carrots, Celery, Parsley, Basil and Worcestershire sauce. Cook for about another 5-10 minutes until the veggies have gotten soft to your liking. I know some people like a bite to them and others like them almost mushy.

Next add your rice and tomatoes along with the water. Stir it up good and cover so that everything can simmer and the rice can cook. Now just like all the other ingredients you can add more rice if you feel there is not enough.
After everything is all cooked and smelling good add the cheese and let it melt in. Then you take your peppers and put them in a pan or whatever oven safe dish you would like to use. Fill the peppers with the mixture and then top with cheese.

Next you take the tomato soup and water it down a little. Pour it over the top of the peppers and in the bottom of the pan. You can leave this out if you like but it helps keep everything moist.
Then place foil over your peppers though be careful the foil dose not touch them because then your cheese sticks to the foil. Place the pan in the oven for about 30 minutes and enjoy!
|Oh the gooey goodness|
Let me know if you try this out and anything you did different. I have been cooking for years but this is the first time I have posts about something I have cooked and how I did it. I hope this comes out all nice and yummy for you!
