Stuffed peppers in the crock pot tend to come out a little mushy, so I decided to try making a casserole instead of leaving the peppers whole. They get cut into tiny pieces when you eat it anyways right?
4 large red bell peppers
1.5 lb ground beef
1.5 cups rice
1.5 cups chicken broth
1 can tomato sauce
Garlic, italian spices, pepper, salt
First cut the peppers into small chunks and line the crock pot. Then add the chicken broth to the rice and cook, following directions for the type of rice you use... the chicken broth just gives it more flavor, if you're watching your sodium you can omit it.
While that's cooking, brown the ground beef.
Then mix the rice, sauce and beef together. Pour over the peppers. I actually added 1/2 a chopped onion to the beef to give it more flavor. Season with whatever spices you like.
Cook on low for 1 -2 hours and enjoy!
