Green peppers stuffed with ground beef, spices, hot peppers and noodles topped with hot pepper cheese. The peppers are stuffed and then baked in the oven until tender until tender.
Yesterday the kiddos and I went to the grocery store and found green peppers on a HUMONGOUS sale – $0.89 each!!! That is over half off what they normally are! So I decided to buy them to make stuffed peppers. When I got home I decided that I wanted to try something else other than the stuffed pepper recipe or the risotto stuffed peppers recipe I usually make. I made them super duper spicy! Almost too spicy for me, but Lover Boy liked them.

Let’s Make Super Spicy Stuffed Peppers Together!
STEP 1: In a medium pan cook 1lb ground beef – add 1tsp oregano, 1tsp parsley, 1/2tsp chili powder, 1/4tsp garlic, S& P to taste. Once the beef is cooked add 1 1/2c of any tomato/spaghetti sauce you have. I had a Five Cheese sauce that I added
STEP 2: In the meantime cook some small noodles. I always make my peppers with rice, but decided to change it up this time
STEP 3: I have a ginormous bag of these peppers that I’m working on using up – so I pulled out some of the meat/sauce mixture and set it aside for the kids. I then added 5 of these bad boys chopped up. I left in the seeds (the spiciest part).
STEP 4: In a large pot bring water to a boil and par boil gutted peppers…until they are slightly tender with a fork (about 7 minutes)
STEP 5: Add drained noodles to the meat/sauce mixture
STEP 6: Stir into the noodles a large handfull of any ol’ hot pepper cheese you have (ie: jalapeno, etc)
STEP 7: Drain peppers, fill with meat/noodle mixture, top with more cheese and bacon bit. Place in a pyrex dish and bake at 350 degrees until the cheese has melted on top
Ooey Gooey yumminess!
If you can handle the heat give them a try…if not, just take out the diced peppers and substitute the hot pepper cheese for cheddar cheese. They will turn out delicious, I promise!! Let me know if you give these a try!
These spicy stuffed peppers are the perfect cozy dinner on a chilly night. I recommend serving them with a fresh salad with creamy dijon vinaigrette salad dressing and then finish it off with a yummy cake mix cookie cake bars for dessert!
These spicy stuffed peppers can be easily tweaked for several recipe variations:
- Spicy Stuffed Peppers: If spicy is not your thing, you can omit the peppers and seeds when making the stuffed pepper filling
- Alphabet Pasta Letters: If you can’t find alphabet pasta letters, you can substitute for orzo pasta or jasmine rice
