Cheesy Broccoli Rice Stuffed Peppers

We all have our favorite comfort foods.

The broccoli-cheese-rice combo always leaves me satisfied and cozy, like I’m wrapped in a big fuzzy blanket.

Although this beloved American dish is tantalizing, broccoli rice casserole is not normally the most healthy meal to serve your family, and is often overlooked.

Cheesy Broccoli Rice Stuffed Peppers


4 bell peppers, any color
1 tablespoon butter
1 small onion, peeled and chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cup long grain rice
3 1/2 cups vegetable broth, divided
2 – 4.5 ounce cans Old El Paso Green Chiles, chopped (mild or hot)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 1/2 cups vey small broccoli florets
2 ounces low fat cream cheese
16 ounces shredded reduce fat cheddar, divided


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 9 X 13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Cut the bell peppers in half from top to bottom. Remove the seeds and lay them in the baking dish, cut side up.
  • Place a medium stock pot over medium heat. Add the butter, onions and garlic. Sauté the onions for 2-3 minutes. Then stir in the rice, 3 cups broth, Old El Paso Green Chiles, salt, and smoked paprika. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Allow the rice to cook for 15-20 minutes covered, until steam holes are evident on the surface and the broth has absorbed.
