How to make Stuffed Bell Pepper Casserole
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees. Grease with spray a 3-quart baking pan.
Step 2: Add the ground beef, onions, bell peppers, garlic, seasoning, pepper, and red pepper flakes in a large frying pan. Cook the ground beef until browned and the onions and peppers are tender. When done, drain the excess grease and transfer the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
Step 3: To the baking dish, add the Worcestershire sauce, diced tomatoes, rice, and beef broth. Stir well.
Step 4: Tent the baking dish, then place it in the preheated oven. Bake the casserole for about an hour or until the rice is tender.
Step 5: When done, take the casserole out of the oven. Remove the cover and top with the shredded cheese. Return to the oven and resume baking for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and bubbly.
