I attended a potluck last weekend and this delicious dish was there. Since we are into our second, maybe third winter…I just had to make some for my meal prep this week.

Ingredients: 

  • 6 bell peppers. Choose your favourite colour. I like green!
  • 1 pound of extra lean ground beef
  • 1 small white onion
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese – you can add more but account for it in your macros!
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp of chilli powder
  • pepper
  • salt

Directions: 

  • Cook 2 cups of rice and set aside
  • Heat up frying pan on low and brown the beef along with:
    • chopped onion
    • garlic powder
    • chilli powder
    • salt/pepper to taste
  • Once the beef is cooked through add in the kidney beans, tomato sauce and rice. Simmer everything together on low for 10 mins.
  • While the chilli is simmering, prepare your pepper cups.
    • Chop off the top of the peppers and scoop out the inside
    • Place peppers in water and boil for 5 mins to soften. I prefer a crunchy pepper so I don’t cook them ahead of time. Get creative and do what you like 🙂
  • Turn oven onto broil
  • Fill up the pepper cups with chilli
  • Top each one with parmesean cheese or cheese of your choice
  • Broil cups for 5 or so minutes until the cheese on top brown’s.

Makes: 6 – 8 servings (depending on the size of your peppers)
