  • 5 bell peppers multiple colors
  • 1 small white onion diced
  • 15 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cup shredded cheese blend I used a cheddar jack blend, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup broth or water
  • dried or fresh parsley for garnish optional


  • Rinse the peppers and cut off the top parts and remove all the membranes and seeds inside.
  • In a bowl, combine together onion, tomatoes, ground beef, cooked rice, egg,1.5 cups of shredded cheese, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and minced garlic. Mix well to combine.
  • Fill each pepper with the mixture.
  • Add your broth or water to the inner pot of the Instant pot. Insert the steam rack and place the stuffed peppers on top of the rack.
  • Lock the lid. Turn the steam release to Sealing. Press Manual and set the time to 9 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, and then do quick release.
  • Top pepper with the remaining shredded cheese. To help cheese melt faster, put lid back on for a couple minutes.
