Can stuffed peppers be frozen?

You can also store them in the fridge and reheat for 3-5 days. Makes them a great meal to make for your favorite new mama, friend in need, or spouse for work the next day. High fives all around!

Ingredients

  • 4 large bell peppers
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 ounce taco seasoning
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 can chopped green chiles 4.5 ounce can
  • 1/4 cup Red Enchilada Sauce Medium
  • 2 cups Mexican blend cheese shredded

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with foil (we love REYNOLDS!) and set aside.
  2. In a medium skillet, heat ground beef over medium high heat, crumbling as you cook.
  3. Stir in the taco seasoning and stir until well coated. Toss in the onions and allow to cook with the beef.
  4. When beef is almost cooked through and onions begin to become transluescent, stir in the green chiles and enchilada sauce. Turn off heat. Set aside.
  5. Cut the top off each pepper and hollow out the inside; removing ribs and seeds. Place each pepper on the baking sheet.
  6. To stuff each pepper, start with several spoonfuls beef, then half cup cheese, then fill nearly to the top with beef. Top with another 1/2 cup cheese (depending on size of the pepper, 1/4 cup cheese would be enough. Whatever covers the top to your liking), and place the top back on the pepper. Repeat with remaining peppers.
  7. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until peppers are tender and cheese is melty.
  8. Serve immediately with sour cream and cilantro if desired.
  9. Enjoy!

This is a great idea! Stuffed peppers are one of my husband's favorite dishes, but it never crossed my mind to put enchilada filling in the center. We'll be having these soon. Love how cheesy they are!

This was delicious and my son who claims to "hate" peppers asked for seconds. I used ground turkey and added rice and black beans. Pared with salad and breadsticks delicious.

    This is awesome news! Thanks for letting me know :)

    Did you use canned beans? If so did you simmer them prior to putting them in the pepper and then let cook for another 30-40 mins? Or did you put beans in directly from can?
