CAJUN STUFFED PEPPERS

bellCAJUN STUFFED PEPPERS

These are not really for large potlucks, but they are great for family meals, Sunday School and small group parties. I will be the first one to tell you, I am not a fan of bell peppers. Green, red or yellow i just never took to them. However, I do love these stuffed peppers. I don’t know if its the cajun seasoning or a combination of things, but I could probably eat a ton of these.

Ingredients:exodus-14-14

1/4 cp Red Onion, finely diced
1/4 cp Red Bell Pepper, finely diced
1 Celery rib, finely diced
1/3 lb Smoked Sausage or Smoked Andoulle Sausage, diced small
2 tsp Cajun Seasoning
1 tsp Fennel Seed, crushed
1 cp cooked Long Grain White Rice
1 lb Ground meat, browned and crumbled
1 Egg White
1/4 cp Corn (I use frozen, but canned or left over will do)
1/4 cp unseasoned Bread Crumbs
6 Bell Peppers, tops cut off and seeded (I prefer green)
1 14oz can Diced Tomatoes
3 Tbl Salsa (chose you own heat)

Directions:

In a heavy skillet, saute first six ingredients in one Tbl of oil for 5 min. Combine with next 5 ingredients. Cut and core whole peppers and place them in a casserole dish or small roster. Stuff peppers to overflowing. Combine tomatoes and salsa. Pour over stuffed peppers. Bake, covered, 1 hour at 350F.
