quick comfort food

I don't know about you but as for me with the start of a New Year, January feels like one long Monday.

Being short on time and long on stress I am in need of comforting and something quick. Here's one of my families favorite easy meals, great when served with some rolls. Now that you have your comfort food, here's a thought..."This is no time for ease and comfort. It is time to dare and endure."--Winston Churchill

Stuffed Green Peppers

6 large green peppers
1 lb ground beef
1/2 c chopped onion
1 14.5oz can of chopped tomatoes (I like the italian flavored)
1/2 c long grain rice
1/2 c water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp Worchestershire sauce
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
1 11oz can of corn

1. Cut tops off of peppers, discard seeds and membranes save the tops. Chop up enough of tops for 1/4 c, discard the rest.

2. Cook the whole green peppers uncovered in boiling water for 5 mins. Invert to drain. Sprinkle the insides with salt.

3. In large skillet cook beef, onion and peppers. Add undrained tomatoes, uncooked rice, water, corn, salt, Worchestershire sauce and dash of pepper. Bring to boil then let simmer covered for 15-18 mins. or till rice is tender. Stir in cheese.

4. Place the peppers in large baking dish, stuff peppers with mixture. Bake covered in 350 degree oven for 30-35 mins.
