Easy stuffed bell peppers with ground beef and rice

In my lifetime, I have made many different versions of stuffed bell peppers. Some recipes have been Italian, whereas others have been Mexican. Some recipes have called for ground pork, whereas others have called for ground turkey or sausage. With so many different delicious preparations, this dish has become one of my favorites.

I prefer to use green bell peppers because they are not as sweet as the yellow or red variety. I also like to add tomato soup and canned tomatoes to give the sauce a tangy flavor.
