Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
  • 1½ cups cooked wild rice
  • 4 to 6 bell peppers
  • 1½ pound of ground beef
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 large bottle V8 or spicy V8
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Make the rice according to package directions.
  2. Cut the tops off of the bell peppers. Remove and discard the stem and seeds. Place bell peppers cut side up in a large pot (to hold all peppers standing up but not falling over). Add a pinch of shredded cheese to the bottom of each pepper.
  3. In a skillet brown the ground beef and add the spices. When the meat is fully cooked, add the cooked rice.
  4. Gently stuff the peppers with the ground beef rice mixture. Add a pinch of cheese on top of the beef rice mixture and return the pepper tops.
  5. Fill the pan with the V8 to just below the cut portion of the pepper. Bring to a boil, lower heat to simmer, and cover. Cook for about 40 minutes.
