What ingredients do you need for stuffed peppers crock pot recipe?
- Bell Peppers (any color is fine.)

How to make slow cooker stuffed peppers:
This is so simple! Just mix all of the ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
Next, put the mixture in the peppers and place in the crock pot. In just a few hours you have a delicious dinner!
You can also add a 1/2 cup cheese if you wish to the mixture. This is optional but tasty. And then add another 1/2 cup to the top in the last few minutes of cooking until cheese melts.
We have also added black beans and extra diced tomatoes to stretch the ground beef even more. The beans go really well with the rice and meat mixture.
Serve with a side salad and your dinner is complete. Keep reading for the full recipe.
Note: rice needs to be slightly undercooked before it goes into the slow cooker so it doesn’t turn mushy. I like to use leftover rice that is cold.
Food Prep Tip:
We keep diced onion and bell pepper in the freezer so it is easy to add to any recipe we like. Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the onions.
If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you can get the veggies really fine if you have children that are picky.
I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.
This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.
