  • 2 bell peppers sliced and seeds removed
  • 1/2 cup cooked white rice
  • 1/2 cup stuffing mix
  • 1/4 cup butter divided
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese
  • 4 ounces baby shrimp
  • 2 ounces imitation crab meat
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chicken broth


  • Saute the diced celery, onion, red bell pepper, and garlic in 2 tablespoons of butter until the veggies are tender, about 6 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and stir in the cream cheese until it has melted.
  • Add the sauted vegetable mixture to a medium-sized bowl and add in the rice, stuffing mix, imitation crab, shrimp, Old Bay, dill, and parsley. Mix well.
  • Add the chicken broth and mix until the stuffing cubes have just started to soften. Mix well. If your mixture is still hard and really dry, add 1 tbsp of broth at a time until the mixture starts to soften.
  • Stuff each half of bell pepper with about 3/4 cup of stuffing, pressing it in lightly and mounding it on the top.
  • Add 1/2 tablespoon of butter to the top of each stuffed bell pepper and bake them in a preheated 375-F oven for 20-25 minutes or until heated through and the peppers are fork tender.
  • Serve and enjoy!
