How to Make Tropical Stuffed Bell Peppers

by Prerna 🌹


  • ½ Pounds Ground pork
  • 2 Cups Cooked rice
  • 3 Bell peppers
  • 4 Tablespoons Yogurt
  • 1 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons Granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ Cups Mixed fruit salad
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Black pepper powder
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Sauté ground pork until mostly cooked -- about 7-8 mins.

    Step 2

    Add yogurt, sugar & spices. Cook until water from the yogurt evaporates.

    Step 3

    Now the rice. Mix the rice & pork to make the stuffing.

    Step 4

    I couldn't stop spooning this filling in my mouth instead of in the peppers. Anyway..

    Step 5

    While the filling is cooling, empty your bell peppers so they look like this. Keep the top part after cutting.

    Step 6

    I used canned fruit. You can use fresh.

    Step 7

    These were the fruits in the can. You can also limit to just pineapples.

    Step 8

    Add in the chopped fruits only when the stuffing has cooled down. We don't want to cook them.

    Step 9

    Yum 😋

    Step 10

    Stuff the peppers; push down the stuffing so that the bells are tightly packed.

    Step 11

    At this point, you can choose to grill, steam or bake these. I baked them as follows:

    Step 12

    Preheat oven to 350F. Place the stuffed peppers standing up or on the side in a baking dish; cover with the top to prevent the rice from drying out in the oven.

    Step 13

    Bake for 30 mins or until the skin is shriveled & dulled :)
