Instant Pot Stuffed Peppers Recipe
- 4 bell peppers, top removed, stemmed and deseeded
- 1 pound (480 g) ground beef
- 1/2 cup finely diced yellow onion
- 8 oz (240 ml) can tomato sauce
- 3/4 cup cooked Mexican rice
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1½ teaspoons chili powder
- 1¼ cups shredded Colby Jck cheese, divided
- kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
In a microwavable bowl, combine tomato sauce and diced yellow onion. Stir well. Microwave for about 5 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Remove tomato mixture from the microwave and set aside. Allow cooling.
Pour 1/3 cup (80 ml) water into the bottom of an electric instant pot. Add a cooking rack and arrange bell peppers on it.
In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, cooled tomato mixture, 1 cup of shredded cheese, cooked Mexican rice, and spices. Stuff bell peppers with beef mixture, then top with remaining shredded cheese.
Close the pot and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 10 minutes.
Using the Quick Release method, bring pressure to normal. Carefully unlock and open the lid. Remove cooked bell peppers from the cooker and transfer them to a serving plate. Serve hot.

Can you use ground turkey instead of ground beef?
This recipe calls for uncooked meat, prior to placing in pressure cooker, correct?
Will cook time still be the same?

Yes, of course. Cook time still be the same. Best regards
