Peppers! Peppers! Peppers!

So my sister and I planted a garden together this year.  We have had so much rain here that it hasn't had a banner year.  The one thing that did produce really well are the bell pepper plants.  But that's OK!!  We love peppers!

So I bet you're wondering what I did with them!  Wellllllllll...........

I cooked 2 lbs of 90% hamburger.
Added 12 oz of light cream cheese
About a cup of parmesan cheese
A family size box of chicken Rice-O-Roni (prepared)
A packet of dry Hidden Valley Ranch dressing

I cleaned 6 peppers, removing all the seeds and 'stuff', then stuffed them with the filling.  I sprinkled them with cheddar/jack cheese and baked them at 350 for about an hour (I put a little bit of water in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan and covered with foil ).  And....surprise!!!  Here's what I got!

Oh my goodness was it ever yummy!!!  Jesse girlfriend made these for us once.  She's an AMAZING cook.  Though I didn't make them exactly as she did, they still came out so yummy!!  But I still had some extra peppers & filling.  I took three more peppers - cleaned them and cut them in half and wrapped each one individually and put them in a gallon freezer bag, so I could freeze them for a quick supper on a night I was busy.  I just cleaned the rest of the peppers, cut them in half, and put them in bags 'unstuffed' for pepper steak, stuffed pepper casserole, etc...

Let me know if you try this recipe!!  Enjoy!!
