Stuffed Peppers/Spanish Rice!

3 1/2 Cups Organic Rice, {cook according to package}
3 lbs. Organic Grass Fed Ground Beef {room temp}
1 Medium Organic Onion, Chopped
2 tbsp Organic Garlic Powder
2 tbsp Organic Chili Powder
2 tbsp Organic Parsley, dried
4 tbsp Organic Cumin
1 tsp Organic Oregano, dried
1 tsp Organic Basil, dried
1 tsp Organic Italian Seasoning
1/2-1 tsp Organic Red Pepper, ground (more if you like spicy)
1 tbsp Organic Onion Powder
5 tbsp Organic Hot Salsa
32 oz Organic Tomato Sauce (I used spaghetti sauce/tomato basil)
8 Organic Peppers, color is up to you
Salt & Pepper


1. Cook your rice according to your packages directions, once done drain and set aside. In another big pot, place your cleaned peppers and pepper tops in the pan, cover with water, salt and bring to a boil; boil for 5 minutes, drain and set in your baking dish. 
2. Heat 4 tbsp butter in a skillet over medium heat, once melted add onions (and any tops that broke/diced) and saute until translucent about 5 minutes.
3. Add your beef to the skillet and cook that until browned and fully cooked, mine took about 10 minutes. Once done drain the grease and add to the pan you cooked the rice in, without the rice in the pan (you are going to need a bigger pan for this, that is why we are switching).
4. Pour the spice blend into the pan and mix until fully coated. Add salsa, and tomato sauce; add water to the jar and shake to get extra sauce out. 
5. Add rice, and mix, you may need more sauce, it depends on how sauce-y {is that a word? lol} you like it. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking. 
6. Stuff the peppers, place the tops back on, shred cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
