I am all for making life easy when you can. Here is an easy fast stuffed green peppers recipe that takes 5 minutes prep and 15 minutes cooking. Toss a salad, cut up some veggies or fruit while it is baking. Add a dinner roll and you have a meal in less then 20 minutes from start to finish.
I love using canned goods for my base then adding to them fresh or frozen ingredients to make them taste totally homemade. With this recipe if you have a little cooked hamburger, bacon, ham or sausage add it to the chile before you start to give it that add punch. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream or sprinkle with cheese.
Fast Stuffed Green Peppers Recipe
4 green peppers
1 can chili
cheese, bacon, hamburger – add any additional toppings or extras that you would like.
Cut the tops off of green peppers, clean out the seeds and use a can of chili for filling. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.
Wow, how easy. I really like this because it will make a quickie supper for me when I’m tired after work.
Yum! Even I can make this !!
This is a great idea. It would be a super way to use up leftover homemade chili in the winter months-you could top each pepper with cheese, sour cream, crushed Fritos, etc. The options are endless:)!
I made these on Sunday, and they are so good and easy. I put a little cheddar cheese on top too. YUM.
Try these with Spanish Rice mixed in….you can stuff about 4 more peppers.

Your recipe sounds so good! I love meals I can prepare in these hot summer months that don’t heat up my kitchen! How is Canadian mozzarella cheese different from Italian mozzarella?
I have used all different types of mozzarella from Canada from the States and to be honest I can’t tell the difference too much.
Some is stringier some isn’t stringy at all.
I think they say Canadian mozzarella because it was put out by the Ontario or Canadian Cheese board.
Thank you everyone for the great quick recipes.. I LOVE this place!
I have a (should say had) recipe for stuffed peppers that I had doctored up to be just like we like it. I had printed it off a website (not sure where) and had written all over it with my updated notes. Went to make them yesterday and couldn’t find the recipe anywhere. I cleaned out my cookbooks a few months ago and put all the loose recipes SOMEWHERE! Now, I’m ready to make them again and cannot find the recipe anywhere. Seeing your email today was a blessing. I will probably add rice to the chili mix because we like rice in our stuffed peppers but this sounds Yummy! Thanks for including it today. You must have heard my prayer.
This recipe sounds great! In my city, peppers are about .60 each which makes this a supper easy snack or side dish when entertaining. Peppers also add a lot of flavor and add bulk to dishes with protein like beans and chicken or beef.
I made this tonight and it was fab. To get rid of the canned taste of the chili, I added a little fresh chopped tomato I had around, a splash of lime juice, and some hot sauce. I also sprinkled a little grated cheddar on top. Delicious.
I just saw this post and I was thrilled! My son loves stuffed peppers and I can make these when I visit him and freeze them in dinner portions! I would never have thought of using the canned chili, what a fantastic idea. I’m always looking for things to freeze for him, since we are now in landscaping season, he works sun-up to sun-down. thanks for yet another great idea. Hope, Jill, you and Tawra and your families are doing great. still a little too cool for me here in MA! not quite beach weather yet—–
We are doing great Donna. Actually we are having cooler weather here in Kansas so some reason but not quite as cool as MA I am sure.
