Jim's Saturday Night Stuffed Pepper Recipe!!

First, start off with your own Jalapeno plant. Mine is located on my balcony and does really well with indirect sunlight.
my pepper plant, delicious!
For today’s stuffed peppers, I also went to the market and purchased a variety of locally grown peppers as well.

Fresh locally grown beefsteak tomato

To prepare the peppers, slice one side of the pepper and use a spoon to take out the innards \ seeds and set aside. Next in a large sauce pan on high heat, pour one beer and a half cup of red wine vinegar and cook the peppers until soft and the a little caramelized.
finish off the prep for the peppers by grilling them
Next, take the peppers and grill them off for a few minutes to get some nice char marks on them.

slow cooked ground beef
For the meat filling, it is pretty simple, brown hamburger with elephant garlic and onion in a fry pan. Drain fat, and add chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, two cups water and a pack of taco seasoning. Then put it all in a crock pot and simmer for about six hours. The longer the better. The rice I just used a simple pre mix of Mexican rice, 60 seconds in the microwave and you’re done.

Let everything cool to room temp before you assemble the peppers. Simply spoon in a little rice, then a hefty amount of meat filling. Top with a mix of fresh cheddar, motz, jalapeno and provolone cheese.

You want to back this for 20 min at 350 then broil off the top for a minute before they come out of the oven.

For an appetizer, you can top this with fresh beefsteak tomatoes and various dipping sauces. For a Mexican dinner, you can use enchilada sauce, or verda, or anything else you would like. This is excellent as a side or main dish.

If I am having guest, this dish I will prepare a day a head then keep in the fridge. I always vacuume seal a few and freeze for instant AWESOME appetizers for those drop in guest. (Pirates)

This Is my basic stuffed pepper recipe, we have done many variations that are all excellent including a shrimp stuffing, Yellowfin Tuna, Sea Scallops, and chicken. ALL GREAT!
