1 onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
1 tbs. Cajun or Creole seasoning
1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
2 small cans tomato sauce
Few shakes of hot sauce
1 cup cooked rice
2 tbs.'s olive oil
Cut off tops of bell peppers and wash, inside and out, remove seeds, and set aside. Chop veggies.
Brown ground beef or sausage on medium heat, in large skillet and drain. Add onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, jalapeno, and garlic, and stir fry for 10 minutes. Add Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, and Cajun seasoning, and mix well. Lower heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add hot sauce and stir well. Add cooked rice and mix gently until well combined. Drizzle a little olive oil, inside and outside of bell peppers. Fill peppers with meat mixture and place in a grill pan. On medium heat, grill on indirect heat for about 30 minutes.Top with cheese, if desired and, grill for 5 more minutes.
These go perfectly with anything else you are grilling, as a delicious side dish or they can easily stand alone as an entree, with a big tossed salad, and French bread. Le bon mange'!
