In a pinch, dried onion can be substituted for the raw onion found in the stuffed bell peppers filling. You can also substitute ground turkey for the ground beef. Instant rice also helps speed up the assembly process.

Don’t forget to add the ketchup sauce before baking the stuffed bell peppers. That’s definitely a step you don’t want to skip! If your family doesn’t like things spicy simply forgo adding the Tabasco sauce to the ketchup mixture. Just a dash doesn’t add much of a kick but it still might be too much for folks who prefer dishes on the milder side.
