Mexican Stuffed Peppers ~ Flashback Friday

I first posted this recipe for Mexican Stuffed Peppers in 2008 and was reminded again about the recipe as I always am each summer when our pepper plants are heavy with fruit.  You can use any kind of sweet pepper.

  • 10 - 12  Sweet Peppers  
  1. Cut the tops off the peppers or slice them in half through the stem, remove the seeds. Arrange them in a deep baking dish. 

Meat Filling
  • 1 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked rice
  • 1  onion chopped fine
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped  cilantro
  • 1 cup black beans (canned, drained and rinsed or dried beans cooked)
  1. Mix together all the filling ingredients and fill peppers.
  • 1 10 ounce / 284 ml can of tomato soup
  • 1 10 ounce /  284 ml can of mushroom soup
  • 1 10 ounce / 284 gram can filled with salsa 
  • 2 cups grated cheddar or mexican blend cheese
Pour sauce over the peppers, cover with lid and bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours. Serve with Tortilla Chips and Green Salad.


  1. I love stuffed peppers..oh Lovella your pics are fine! I have green peppers in my garden and that will work okay to I'm thinking.
    is this another dish for your camping trip??

  2. I haven't made stuffed peppers for a long time. I really like the Mexican twist in this recipe. (I've done them like cabbage rolls) Hopefully the next time is not too far away - I will try this!

  3. That's a nice twist on stuffed peppers! And I like all things Mexican, so I will try this out for sure.

  4. Ah yes, how many times haven't we made up a batch of Mexican Meatballs....with the rice and peas. Our girls favorites too and they make them now for their family. Kathy

  5. Made these yesterday and they are very good! I had a bit of a hard time making meatballs with left over meat mix. They didn't want to hold together - maybe too much corn, but I added some bread crumbs and that helped. Had the stuffed peppers with mashed potatoes and a nectarine spinach salad.

  6. Those look wonderful Lovella! Haven't had these in years and your recipe sounds really good!

  7. These look wonderful. Believe it or not, I have never made stuffed peppers. Wow, I am missing something.
