My guess... Just about anything... Decked out stuffing, Decked out Spaghetti or Goulash. The immagination can go a long ways. :)

I use mild Italian sausage, enhanced with some bread crumbs, egg, milk, fresh ground pepper, Worchestershire, and a little dijon mustard...I don't measure. You can also stuff them with a mess of seasoned seasonal veggies topped with mozzarella cheese for a meatless meal.

Greek Stuffed Peppers
4 servings


  • 4 yellow, orange and/or red bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat orzo
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 6 ounces baby spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano, or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, (not oil-packed), chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar, or red-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  1. Halve peppers lengthwise through the stems, leaving the stems attached. Remove the seeds and white membrane. Place the peppers cut-side down in a large microwave-safe dish. Add 1/2 inch water, cover and microwave on High until the peppers are just softened, 7 to 9 minutes. Let cool slightly, drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add orzo and cook until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  3. Mash chickpeas into a chunky paste with a fork, leaving some whole.
  4. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until soft, about 4 minutes. Add spinach and oregano and cook, stirring, until the spinach is wilted, about 1 minute. Stir in the orzo, chickpeas, 1/2 cup feta, tomatoes, vinegar and salt; cook until heated though, about 1 minute. Divide the filling among the pepper halves and sprinkle each pepper with some of the remaining 1/4 cup feta.

I use hamburger, onion, bread crumbs or oat meal, some of the bell pepper, tomato sauce and top with cheddar cheese.

How about mexican style? Ground meat with Ortega diced green chilis, cumin, oregano, tomato, and topped with cheddar cheese or Monterey Jack.

How about a stuffing mixture that you would stuff a turkey with?

I like a sage sausage-bread-celery-onion stuffing, but you could use a cornbread stuffing, or oyster stuffing (yuck) or whatever stuffing/dressing you love on Thanksgiving!

I had a big bowl of sloppy joes left, added cooked Mahatma instant rice, extra catchup, stuffed into par boiled green peppers, and topped with shredded cheddar cheese. These went into the crock pot, on high, and hope they are done by dinner time. If not I'll finish them off in the microwave.

I had three sweet red peppers left over from my salsa making ordeal so yesterday made stuffed peppers using leftover gluten free pasta with our home canned marinara, cooked down cherry tomatoes from our garden, brown rice, and home ground pork breakfast sausage. We topped it with fresh ground manchenko cheese - I added hot sauce at the table. It was all good and got rid of some things stacking up on the counter.

Peppers are cheap right now and have been loving the stuffed peppers. Yesterday afternoon I made these using the all recipes recipe and found them to be somewhat bland but after adjusting salt and hot sauce, at the table, were not bad. I was out of shredded mozzarella or would have added that to the mix. It took over three hour to make these!

Love stuffed poblano, chili rellenos and stuffed red, yellow and orange bells. Not really a fan of stuffed green bells.
