Stuffed Peppers Slowcooker Recipe

Stuffed Peppers Slowcooker Recipe

Stuffed peppers is a one-dish meal.  Bell peppers are stuffed with a mixture of meat, rice and fried onions, then simmered in tomato sauce.  Any color bell peppers are great for stuffing – you can make stuffed green bell peppers, stuffed red bell peppers, stuffed yellow bell peppers and orange ones too. You can use any kind of ground meat in stuffed peppers, but I like their taste best with ground turkey.

Stuffed peppers recipe can be made with and without the slowcooker.  I like to make stuffed peppers in a slowcooker as I don’t like to babysit the simmering pot on the stove :)

Ingredients

  • 6 large bell peppers
  • 2 lbs of ground turkey

  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
