Fall means one thing in the kitchen….and that’s comfort food.

When I was growing up, my mom used to make my absolute favourite dish every Fall; Stuffed Tomatoes and Peppers. It’s just one of those foods that reminds you of home.

This recipe works best with fresh ingredients, especially fresh ground beef. Thank you so much to Nelson Farms for a next level quality ground beef that not only elevated this recipe (trust me, my cooking skills needed it) but really reminded me of home.

Prep time is about 30 minutes…cutting and scooping out tomatoes and peppers,  preparing the stuffing….and about 10 minutes of intermittent wine drinking (obviously)!  A good qualify ground beef is a must….and of course, big and juicy tomatoes and green peppers straight from the garden.

Hope you like the dish as much as I loved it growing up……and hope it  gives you those warm fall fuzzy feelings.
