“The freshly-made Creole sauce puts a different twist on stuffed peppers, and really makes this dish!” - by Bobbie Jean
Original recipe yields 4 stuffed peppers
- Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in 1/2 cup onion and garlic, and cook until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chopped bell pepper, tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, then season with salt, chili powder, sugar, black pepper, glove, and a bay leaf. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- While the sauce is simmering, microwave the peppers until tender, about 45 seconds. Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat, and add ground beef. Cook and stir until browned and crumbly, then stir in 1/4 cup onion, and celery. Drain off grease. Cook another 5 minutes, then fold in the rice and Parmesan cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- To assemble, stir about 1/2 cup of the Creole sauce into the beef mixture to moisten it. Stuff the peppers with the beef mixture, and place onto a 9x9 inch baking pan. Pour the remaining Creole sauce over the peppers.
- Bake peppers, uncovered, until hot and beginning to brown, about 25 minutes.

"This came out really well. I prefer a bit more spice, so I doubled the chili powder and the sugar, and added a good amount of fresh ground black pepper. As I did not have cloves, I added a sprinklin..." See moreg of cinnamon. And to make it a bit healthier I substituted lean ground turkey for the ground beef, and used brown rice instead of white. I would definately make this again. "
