Costco Stuffed Peppers – Review and Instructions
The Kirkland Signature Stuffed Peppers is one of the most popular prepared meals in the Costco Deli – and for a good reason. They are a complete meal, with seasoned ground beef and rice stuffed inside a fresh bell pepper…these have protein, rice and vegetable all in one colorful beef stuffed pepper. Simply bake them and dinner is done…you can even bake them right in the container they come in (well, remove the plastic cover).
Why We Like Them
Our review: These are super easy to make, and they come complete with a veggie, protein and starch all ready – just cover with aluminum foil and pop them in the oven, and dinner is done! You can make as many or as few of the stuffed bell peppers as you like. If you cook the whole tray, don’t worry because they heat up well so if you have leftovers, they make a great quick lunch just zap them in the microwave!
My 9 year old loves the the Kirkland stuffed bell peppers! My picky 10 year old doesn’t love them – but he doesn’t love anything so the fact that he’ll eat half of one is kind of a win if you know him. If your kids are picky, I’d say that if they will eat meatballs, sloppy joes or meatloaf, they will most likely eat these. If those are no-go, then these might not be the right dinner for them.
