1 hrs


  • 6 green bell peppers

  • salt to taste

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • cup chopped onion

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, chopped

  • ½ cup water

  • ½ cup uncooked rice

  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed tomato soup

  • water as needed


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cut the tops off bell peppers and remove the seeds. Cook bell peppers in boiling water for 5 minutes; drain. Sprinkle salt inside each bell pepper and set aside.

  2. Place ground beef and onion in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir until beef is browned, about 5 minutes. Drain off excess fat and season with salt and pepper. Stir in tomatoes, 1/2 cup water, rice, and Worcestershire sauce; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cheese.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Stuff each bell pepper with beef and rice mixture; arrange open-side up in a baking dish.

  5. Combine tomato soup with just enough water in a medium bowl to make the soup a gravy consistency; pour over the bell peppers and cover with aluminum foil.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and cheese is melted and bubbly, about 25 to 30 minutes.
