Unstuffed Peppers

     If you love stuffed peppers like I do but aren't in the mood to make them from scratch, this recipe for Unstuffed Peppers from Campbell's gives you all the flavor without the fuss.  Brown your ground beef with the onions over a full compliment of coals.  Move the coals to a ring around the bottom of the oven, add the rest of the ingredients and cover with as many coals on the lid as you'll need to keep it at a strong bubble.  In my 10 inch oven I used 24 coals on the lid and the peppers were ready in 25 minutes.  Such an easy way to enjoy stuffed peppers and tailor made for camp cooking, this recipe is going to be filed straight away in my chuck box.

Unstuffed Peppers
1 Tblsp vegetable oil
1/2 to 1 pound ground beef OR turkey
1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 cups V8 Vegetable Juice
1/2 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
2 medium green peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

     Lightly oil or spray 10 inch dutch oven.
     Saute onions and beef OR turkey in vegetable oil over a full spread of coals until browned.
     Add basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
     Stir in rice, V8 Juice and peppers; mix until well combined.
     Move coals to a ring of 10 around the base of the oven.
     Cover with as many coals as needed to keep liquid at a strong simmer.
     Cook for 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway, or until rice has absorbed liquid and peppers are tender.
     Makes 4 servings.
