My husband, Steve, loves this stuffed pepper recipe. They're so filling and easy to prepare. I serve them with mashed potatoes and coleslaw for a no-fuss supper. —Karen Gentry, Somerset, Kentucky

Ingredients

  • 2 large green peppers
  • 1/2 pound ground beef

  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce, divided
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
