6 green peppers

1-½ cups cooked rice

1-½ cups chopped pecans

1 ½ teaspoon salt

¾ cup tomato juice

3 tablespoons shortening

2 lbs. Ground beef

1 ½ tablespoon minced onion

3 tablespoons celery, finely chopped

¾ cup water or ¾ cup tomato juice
Boil green peppers, which have been seeded and cored, until just enough to prick with a fork. Drain and keep warm. Make stuffing by combining rice, pecans, salt, and tomato juice. Sauté in shortening, beef, onion, and celery. Mix meat mixture in rice mixture, stirring thoroughly but without handling too much. Stuff peppers and place in greased baking pan. Either ¾ cup water of ¾ cup tomato juice may be poured into pan around peppers. Bake for ½ hour and serve with sauce.


  1. I borrowed some pecans from a friend and she gave me some of these pecans. Wow! I couldn’t get over how meaty the nuts were and just had to have more and more to share. I may be shopping Christmas ideas soon. The older we get and have everything we need, unique gifts are hard to think up sometimes. This is great! Keep taking care of your beautiful trees.
