Slow Cooker Stuffed Bell Peppers

Slow Cooker Stuffed Bell Peppers are stuffed with ground beef, rice, diced tomatoes, black beans, and cheese.  They cook to perfection in the slow cooker and make an excellent dinner! 

I love my slow cooker.  If I could marry my slow cooker I would.   Ok not really, but that is how much I love that thing.  I use my slow cooker year round.  It is perfect for busy days.  I love throwing a meal in and letting it cook all day.   Some of my favorite recipes on the blog are slow cooker recipes.  And this one was definitely added to the list!


How perfect is the idea that you can cook your meal right inside a bell pepper?   You get your own individual serving right inside a pepper.  The meat is combined with rice, diced tomatoes, cheese and some amazing flavors and seasonings.   It slow cooks all day and the pepper turns soft so that you can just eat the whole thing right up!  The entire family gobbled this one down down and thought it was delicious.  Well except for the picky eater.  He ate the inside of the pepper.  But hey its a start right? 🙂
