Green peppers(smooth w/ good color & shape)

1 lb. ground beef or other meat (I use 1/2 lb ground meat and 2 cups ground ham)
1 Tbsp. grated onion(I use a small onion and chop fine)
1/3 cup celery, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups cooked white rice (I usually cook 1 cup rice acc'd. to directions and use about 3/4th's of it)
Salt and Pepper
Tomato Sauce/Topping

Wash peppers..cut large ones in half lengthwise...remove a slice from stem end of small ones. Remove seeds and cut away seed parts, leaving a clean shell.

Place in boiling, salted water and boil for 5-8 minutes, or until almost tender. Drain.

Stuff each pepper with stuffing. Place in a shallow baking dish containing a small amount of water.

Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until browned.

Stuffing Directions:

Brown beef slightly, stirring to keep meat in separate particles. If the meat is lean, I add a little fat. Add onion and celery and cook about 5 minutes longer or until vegetables are soft.

Add ground ham, rice and season to taste. Moisten with a little bit of the tomato sauce.

Fill pepper shells. Before baking, pour remaining tomato sauce over shells.
