Fajita Stuffed Bell Peppers. This easy stuffed peppers recipe will be a family favorite! Tender, juicy steak fajita meat mixed with rice and veggies all stuffed inside bell peppers topped with cheese and baked to perfection.
How amazing do those colorful Fajita Stuffed Bell Peppers look? And that’s nothing compared to how they tasted!
The most important part about this recipe, are you paying attention??? Marinate the meat. Isn’t that always the most important thing when there is meat involved? I know it is in my experience. Flavor. Juiciness. All good things that can come from marinating. Let this marinate overnight in a large plastic bag. Then when you’re ready to cook the next day, you’re all set to go.
One of the tips when making this recipe is to make sure that you under cook the meat. Although..according to the hubs, the meat pictured below would be pure perfection. He’s a fan of rare. But since the meat is going to be stuffed into the bell peppers and baked again, we don’t want to start with the meat too cooked. Then it would end up over cooked by the end of the process. So let it stay a little rarer than you prefer and it will end up right where you want it.
For the rice mixture I used my Mexican Rice recipe, super easy and quick, to me it’s easier to make this than using a pre made package of mexican rice. You can basically get it going and just let it cook low and slow on it’s own. Quite the low maintenance dish if you ask me. No judgment if you prefer the package of mexican rice though.
If short on time you can always substitute pre-cooked fajita meat. Although these really come together fast. I attribute that to using canned veggies. Canned foods can help you make nutritious and flavorful meals you will feel good about serving to the family. Canning foods is one of the best ways to get food from the farm to the table, while locking in nutrients at the peak of ripeness! Using canned fruits and veggies can be a great way to add some vitamins and minerals to family dinner. I know for me they definitely save on prep time. Not to mention they are typically less expensive than buying frozen. We usually do one day of grocery shopping for the week, so not only does my list need to be on point to manage that, but by the end of the week, most the veggies and fruits are gone, or not doing so well. Buying cans ensure that by the end of the week I still have veggies on hand to feed the fam.
You are going to love how flavorful this dish comes out. And of course have plenty of sour cream, salsa, cilantro, limes, cheese, and whatever other toppings you want on hand!
