CrockPot Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients:

  • Enough peppers to fit your crockpot
  • 1 pound lean ground beef or turkey
  • 1 cup already-cooked rice
  • 1 can flavored tomatoes (Fire Roasted, Italian) If you don’t have flavored, add 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup water

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, mix the ground beef and rice with all the stuff (except for the water and the peppers)
  2. Wash and clean out the peppers. Save the tops.
  3. Stuff each pepper with a good amount of the ground beef and rice mixture
  4. Nestle the peppers into your crock and put the little pepper tops back on.
  5. Pour in 1/3 cup of water around the bases of the peppers
  6. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. I cooked these for exactly 8.

Peppers will have a roasted flavor and the meat should cook nicely without a hint of grease.
