    I was feeding my bad habbits today and started recipe searching. Good thing I did because I found a great recipe that I havn't used in years and I want to share it with ya'll. It's stuffed bell peppers and they make a great side dish or even a main dish if your eating light. There are a couple variations and this one has been adapted over the years from one my Mom used in the Betty Crocker Cookbook. I usually do these in the stove but they would be wonderful done on the smoker or even the grill.

    First smoke a fatty or a roll of Hamburger (if you want you can just brown this in a skillet.) While sausage/hamburger is smoking/browning cook enough rice for 1 serving per person (I use minute rice). Once rice and meat are done combine them together in a large bowl and add 1 onion diced, and enough pasta or pizza sauce to coat everything. You could also use plain tomato sauce but I would add some extra spices as it would be a bit bland. Then core out your bell pepper and stuff with the filling. Put back in the smoker or your oven untill the pepper is fork tender but not mushy. I like to add a little pepper or montery jack cheese the last 10 min. or so and take them out when the cheese is nice a bubbly.

    Hey those do sound great! My mom has been cooking these for me for years. She adds some corn and mushrooms also. Thanks for reminding me of these I never thought about smoking the meat.
