If you want to make a delicious dinner without spending too much time in the kitchen, then you should try this Picadillo Stuffed Pepper Casserole. It is made with green peppers and is stuffed with a sweet and savory filling of ground beef seasoned with garlic, cumin, cinnamon, raisins, almonds, tomatoes and picante sauce. It is baked until tender and topped with shredded Cheddar cheese to make a flavorful Latin-American dish. It only takes 30 minutes to bake, which makes it the perfect dinner to prepare after a long day at work.

Cooking Time30 min

Cooking Vessel Size2-quart baking dish


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder (or 1 small clove garlic, minced)
  • 1 can stewed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup picante sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup toasted slivered almonds
  • 2 medium green peppers, seeded and cut into lengthwise quarters
  • 2 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Fresh basil leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Cook ground beef and garlic in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring often to break up the meat. Stir tomatoes, picante sauce, cumin, cinnamon, raisins and almonds in the skillet. Cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.

  3. Arrange peppers in a 2-quart casserole dish. Spoon ground beef mixture over peppers. Cover the dish.

  4. Bake for 25 minutes or until peppers are tender. Uncover the dish. Top with cheese. Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Garnish with basil.

This is certainly a different combination of ingredients than what I'm normally used to, at least for stuffed peppers. I normally associate raisins and almonds with things like granola and trail mix. I've seen many recipes for picadillo that call for raisins, but almonds are new to me. One suggestion I've encountered calls for a mix of ground beef and chorizo, which sounds really appealing to me and is one I want to try.

This stuffed peppers recipe is very out of the ordinary indeed! I thought it was very strange that ingredients like raisins and almonds are used in the meat mixture, but when I think about it, it is not that far off. I've seen mole sauce done before using these same flavors! I plan to try this dish using poblano peppers in place of the green bells, since I have a ton of them ready in my garden!
