    Yup!!

    I use one can of tomato sauce and one can of crushed tomato.

    I put all of my spices in the meat/rice mixture, stuff each pepper and cram into a roasting pan, cover all of it with the tomato sauce and then crushed tomato, cover and bake 250 for at least 1 hour.

    And for me ... would you please cook up lots of onions and spread those on top before you add the sauces?

    Can you believe it ... I detest raw onions, but love them cooked!

    QuiltE ... gotcha covered ... I dice onions and the tops of the peppers and add them to the meat/rice stuffing, along with spices.

    We pour an undiluted can of tomato soup over our stuffed peppers.

    BTW ... a nice alternative to the usual stuffed peppers .... instead of ground beef, use cooked chicken (I use Swanson white meat chicken in the can). It doesn't stay "packed" like the beef does, but I love the flavor. Naturally I use different spices when I make it with chicken than when I make with beef.

    I use a can of undiluted tomato soup also. That's how my MIL taught me to make it. My husband won't eat the peppers, but he loves the meat cooked with them. So I have to make extra meatballs and stick in the pot!

    Ditto! Sometimes I use taco seasoning in meat mixture and a little in the soup for a little extra kick.

    I like the taste of the meat also, the peppers give heart burn. I use the sauce and canned diced tomatoes too, and scalloped potatoes a must.

    The sauce that we usually put over stuffed peppers is called avar. However, I am not sure of the spelling, that's how it is said. It is made from peppers and you can get a hot one or a sweet one and it is much better than tomato sauce for my taste.

    I use part of a jar of Bertolli spaghetti sauce in my rice/meat mixture and some more on top after they are stuffed.

    Spaghetti sauce for me--marinara, or even pizza sauce. I've never had a taste for plain tomato sauce--don't like to order spaghetti dinners at restaurants because that's what I seem to get so often! At least that's what I taste. Incidentally, I can my own spaghetti/pizza sauce and use for all sorts of dishes.

    Progresso makes a tomato basil soup that is wonderful over stuffed peppers and so easy too. Or a tomato bisque soup is another good one.

    Have you tried one of the canned pizza sauces. That's what I use but I also make my own stuffed bell peppers. When I use jalapenos in my stuffed peppers, I use a picante sauce. If you need to thicken it up just use a tomato past that's in the tube. It's much thicker . The last couple minutes in the oven I top with cheese slices or even after pulling them out of the oven, I'll top with cheese.

    What spices do you put in the stuffing. I am looking for a different recipe. I also get heartburn from green peppers. I finally convinced my DH to grow other colors of peppers. All of the colored peppers don't bother my stomach

    I use one can of stewed tomatoes, seasoned, and one can of tomato soup, the soup adds body and seems to smoothe out the sauce, taste wise and texture wise.

    I've never tried to make them, does anyone have a good 'Tried and True' recipe for Stuffed Peppers. My DH's mom used to make them for him and I know he'd love to have them again.

    I always make loads of spaghetti sauce, and put a few small containers in the freezer for other uses (like a green bean casserole that I make, stuffed peppers, etc). Love stuffed peppers, but DH gets major acid reflux, so I have to save a dinner like that for when he's out of town on business...

    I start my sauce by sauteing , chopped onion, chopped green pepper tops, and one rib of celery chopped fine. Then I put canned tomatoes and tomato paste along with a little oregano and basil, and salt and pepper to taste. I let that simmer while I get the meat mixture ready and the peppers ready to be stuffed.

    Daylily Dawn has bout the same thing I would use, except I might not add the oregano; depends on if you want that
    "spaghetti" sauce flavor. The basil makes a world of difference in sauces made with tomatoes; I use it in creole sauces and fish courtboullion, too. Simmering for a long time enhances the flavor. Good luck.

    That's the way I do it too.l And I also use Rice A Roni - Spanish Rice mix and use that with the hamburger. I made a lot during the fall and then freeze it in disposable aluminum 8x8 pans. Oh, that sounds so good right now. Have a good day. Edie
