Mince Stuffed Pointed Pepper

We have lovely shiny colorful Red Peppers all over, I usually buy them for my salads, the best well known Red Vitamin C supplier, as we say in German Die bunte Vitamin C Bombe:D
A very hearty rich meal with stuffed mince and baked with cheese-------Endless yummy!
You can prepare the mince ahead and then just fill in and bake and serve with Baguette or Rice
I love the combination Rice and any nice hot dip with it and in this case I usually make my green chili chutney with it.

I prepare all beforehand so it is easy to just assemble before the lunch or dinner time
 This is how i prepare it:
-wash and cut off the head of the peppers and scrape out all the seeds
400 g minced meat
5 big Peppers ( sort of bell pepper/paprika)
2 large onion/ fine sliced
2-3 pods of fresh garlic (crushed)
½ tsp salt (or to taste)
¼ tsp red chili
¼ tsp black pepper powder
¼ tsp curry powder
½ tsp mixed herbs
(Oregano-rosemary-thyme-herb of the province)
150gr grated cheese
4-5 tbsp oil
First prepare the minced meat:
- heat the oil and add in the crushed garlic, stir so it does not burn and gives a nice aroma
-I use really less oil, as minced meat also leaves some and this shouldn’t be too greasy
-now fry half the onion slightly in the oil till pinkish color
-now add the minced meat and don’t let it burn. Just stir till it changes color
-sprinkle all the spices and now add the other sliced onions to it and mix well
- This mince is not a regular curry so it has to be a bit light in taste
- stir the meat till it’s nice coarse and dry…. Let cool a bit

-now fill in the pointed pepper and stuff it pressing it flat with a tsp till it’s all covered

-take a casserole and spread some minced meat on the bottom and place the peppers on it

- sprinkle the grated cheese on each of them and all over on the minced meat too

-bake it in a preheated oven on 180°C till the paprika turns like a roasted one and the cheese is melted but not burnt!

-serve it with plain rice and salad or if you like have it with a baguette its ultra yummy :)

I make it a bit hot as being a chili lover I always use red whole chilies when i heat up the oil, it’s for that extra HOT kick :D
