Delicious and fun to make, this hearty main course pairs well with a green salad for a simple meal.


  • 4 bell peppers
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fully-cooked rice (white or brown)
  • 1 10-oz. container La Terra Fina Spinach Artichoke & Parmesan Dip & Spread
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400℉.
  2. Cut the bell peppers in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and cores. Place the peppers cut side up in a baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.
  3. While the peppers are baking, prepare the filling. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5-7 minutes, until fragrant. Add the italian seasoning and sauté for an additional minute.
  4. Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook with the onion, breaking it up into small pieces as it cooks, until completely brown.
  5. Remove the skillet from heat. Sprinkle the salt over the beef and add the cooked rice. Toss until the beef and rice are evenly distributed.
  6. Add the La Terra Fina Spinach Artichoke & Parmesan Dip & Spread to the mixture in the skillet. Mix until all of the ingredients are coated in dip.
  7. Spoon the filling into the baked bell peppers and sprinkle the mozzarella on top.
  8. Place the filled bell peppers back in the oven and bake for 5-8 minutes, until the cheese on top is melted.
