Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers / Slow Cooker Thursday

6 green or yellow bell peppers
1/2 medium onion
1 pound lean ground beef
1 package chicken flavored rice mix ( I use Rice-A-Roni.That's where got this recipe)
1 cup frozen corn
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Nonstick cooking spray
1 8-oz can tomato sauce

Wash green peppers and cut tops off. Clean out seeds from inside of peppers. Chop the tops of the peppers and set aside. Chop the onion. Saute ground beef in skillet until lightly brown. Drain off grease. Add beef back to skillet and saute with chopped onions and chopped pepper tops until peppers start to soften. In medium bowl, add Rice-a-Roni, beef mixture, corn, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and cheese. Mix well. Scoop mixture evenly into the six peppers. Lightly coat the inside of the crock pot with cooking spray for easy cleanup. Place the filled peppers in the slow cooker. Pour the tomato sauce evenly over the peppers.

Cook for 6 to 8 hours on low-heat setting or 3 to 4 hours on high-heat setting.

Thank you for sharing this recipe. I've been looking for a recipe for stuffed peppers in the crockpot. I usually make stuffed pepper soup instead. But this makes me want to make them.

This recipe for stuffed peppers sounds very good. I usually use rice and ground beef. I'll have to try using rice a-roni. This group has such great variations of some of my favorite recipes.

I always loved stuffed green peppers. I used to see a lot of them when I was a kid but now nobody is doing them anymore. Thank you so much for your recipe. I might try it at home. God bless you and your loved ones always.

I cannot stand peppers, when I was little my Mom used to make stuffed peppers and I would eat the filling and leave the pepper!

I love stuffed green peppers - made some a few weeks ago. I've never used rice a roni, always do it the old fashion way. It wouldn't hurt to try it though.

I have also developed an insatiable taste for red bell pepper - nowadays, I dice and put them in almost everything I eat.
