This may not be a quick recipe but it is one that is ready for you when you want it. Start this one in the morning and put it in the crock pot for dinner. This is based on the popular vegetarian recipe, but our kids love meat, so we’ve added ground beef to it.

Ingredients

  • 6 bell peppers, tops cut off and seeded
  • 1 lbs. ground beef or venison
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice (I use basmati rice. It cooks in just 15-20 minutes)
  • 14oz can of diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4.5oz fresh spinach
  • 1/4 cup taco seasoning (click here for taco seasoning recipe)
Directions

  1. Cook brown rice according to directions.
  2. Chop onions and garlic.
  3. Sautee onions and garlic 2-3minutes add ground meat and brown.
  4. Stir in taco seasoning (link) and tomatoes.
  5. Add spinach. Stir in spinach until wilted.
  6. Add and stir in rice.
  7. Fill pepper with mixture and place upright in crockpot for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

 

 

*These are great cut up and topped with avocado, chopped cilantro, crushed corn chips or guacamole.
