Says Linda B. of Griffin, Georgia, “When making stuffed peppers, meat loaf or any dish with ground beef, I stir some brown sugar into the meat mixture. It brings out a delightful yet subtle flavor that’s extra special.”
Our Test Kitchen staff put a zesty twist on a dinnertime staple with this colorful main course. Garlic, chili powder, cumin and more season the pepper's ground beef so well, you won't even miss the salt.
If you like stuffed peppers, you'll love this speedy version. It offers all the comforting flavor of the original, but takes just half an hour. Instead of cooking the instant rice, you can use 2 cups leftover cooked rice if you have it on hand. —Beth Dewyer, Du Bois, Pennsylvania
We've always liked stuffed peppers, but everyone is pleasantly surprised at this mildly spicy version. For convenience, you can assemble these pretty peppers ahead of time and bake them later.
