Classic Stuffed Green Peppers Recipe
My family grows 200 acres of green peppers. We think one of the best way to enjoy this fresh vegetable is in the classic recipe.—Karnemaat Farms, Marlene Karnemaat, Fremont, Michigan
- 6 medium green peppers
- 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
- 1 cup cooked long grain rice
- 1/2 cup chopped onion

- 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
