This tasty weeknight meal can be prepped ahead and can be cooked in under 20-30 minutes! Even though it seems "fancy" it really is super easy with a few simple tips!
Tip #1: While your oven is pre-heating, wash the bell peppers, slice off their heads and slice in half. Put on a roasting pan face up (this makes them start to get a little tender before you cook them full on).
Tip #2: While oven is pre-heating, use Pre-chopped garlic, on a skillet over medium heat with olive oil. Add onion and then crumble over the beef mixture.
Tip #3: Make triple the amount of beef you would think to make! Why? You can make double or triple the recipe and freeze your stuffed peppers!! I put 2 halves in a tupperware and brought them to work the next day. The day after, I had Dan pop them in the oven to re-heat for toasty dinner leftovers.
