1 cup rice (white or brown)
1 lb ground beef (or turkey)
1 small onion diced
28 oz crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 tsp Red pepper flakes
Cut tops off peppers (cut up and freeze for later date or eat them)
Mix meat, rice, spices together (this is either gross or therapeutic)
Divide the meat equally into the peppers. Arrange in crockpot. Pour tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes around the peppers.
Cook in crockpot 4 hours on high, 8
hours on low.
Serve with mashed potatoes, noodles, or your favorite veggie if you're not a "starchy"
Often I make these the night before and plug in the morning. I also sometimes add zucchini or squash.
You can "taco" these up, adding corn, taco seasoning instead of spices and adding rotel tomatoes with chiles to tomato sauce.
