Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe

One of my favorite dinner dishes to make is this stuffed bell peppers recipe.  I absolutely love bell peppers! For this version I used brown rice, ground beef, and tomato sauce to stuff the peppers, usually I use white rice.  But the substitution of brown rice was great!  When making stuffed bell peppers, try to find the largest peppers you can, and make sure they are firm, fresh, and not mottled or dry. The better peppers that you use for the recipe, the more delicious they will be!
