I got the basics for this recipe from Paula Deen, which should give you some indication of how healthy it is, but in the few times I've made these stuffed peppers I've modified a few things. This recipe is great for a day off, since it is pretty time consuming, but it's definitely worth the wait!

Ingredients:

4 large red bell peppers

1 lb ground pork or chicken

1 medium onion

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1.5 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 cup cooked rice

3/4 cup sour cream

1 cup diced tomatoes

Handful of chopped scallions

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 cup hot water

2 teaspoons powdered beef bouillon

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Saute the pork onion, garlic, salt and pepper together. While that is cooking, cut the red peppers in half lengthwise, bonus points if you can cut the stems down the middle to make the pepper halves look pretty.  Arrange the pepper halves in a casserole dish. Drain the fat off of your cooked pork mixture, and stir in the rice, sour cream, tomatoes, scallions and the soy sauce (mmmm, umami!). Fill the peppers with this mixture. In a small bowl mix together the beef bouillon and the hot water, and add to the bottom of the casserole dish. Cover the dish with tin foil and cook for about 30 minutes. Take the foil off and spoon the hot broth into the top of the peppers, and then sprinkle 1/4 cup of cheddar onto each pepper. Return to the oven uncovered for another 10 minutes, till the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and enjoy!

There seem to be endless ways to prepare stuffed peppers. Do you ever make them?

I make stuffed peppers often. All those red peppers make me jealous. Mine in the garden have not turned red yet.
I've made stuffed peppers with
Quinoa or brown rice
Shredded chicken
jelepenos
Garlic
Sea salt
Cracked black pepper
Feta sprinkled on top after baking

These sound good!

I like to make them with sloppy joe meat as a filling, topped with cheese.  My family doesn't like them any other way.
