Ingredients

Green Peppers, Water, Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), Cooked Ground Beef, Cooked Enriched Long Grain Rice (Water, Rice, Iron, Niacin, Thiamin Mononitrate, Folic Acid), TomatoesTomatoes 
 
Cooked tomatoes and sauces may be more beneficial to consume than uncooked tomatoes, because the heating process makes all carotenoids (including lycopene) more easily absorbed by the body. 
Tomatoes have significant levels of Llycopene. Lycopene, one of the carotenoids, is known for its antioxidant properties. 
, Tomato Juice, 2% or Less of Modified Cornstarch, Soybean Oil, Sugar, Salt, Rolled Oats, Dried Onions, Soy Protein Concentrate, Whey Protein ConcentrateWhey Protein Concentrate 
 
Whey is one of two proteins found in milk. The other is casein. Whey protein concentrate is a form of whey from which the lactose, minerals and water have been removed. It contains low levels of fat and carbohydrates and 30 to 90 percent protein. It is used as an emulsifier to blend oil- and water-based ingredients, as a thickening agent and to boost protein content in foods. This ingredient is considered by the USDA or FDA to be safe for this intended use.
, White Vinegar, Autolyzed Yeast ExtractAutolyzed Yeast Extract 
 
Autolyzed yeast extract results from the breakdown of yeast cells to release amino acids, salts and carbohydrates. It provides a “meaty” flavor to foods and is often mixed in with seasonings in snack foods, stocks and broths. Because autolyzed yeast extract contains free glutamic acid, those who are sensitive to monosodium glutamate or MSG  should look for the yeast extract on the label. Autolyzed yeast extract is considered by the USDA or FDA to be safe for this intended use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A definite winner! I have been purchasing these for years! I love the sauce and meat mixture. The peppers get a bit mushy and the skins tough, but all in all these are delicious!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Taste like homemade ! I like to doctor up the Stuffed peppers with shredded Cheddar cheese and crushed taco chips. I microwave them usually just short of you suggested cook time then I put them in the over for the last 5 minutes. There Great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Stuffed Green Peppers!!!!!!!!!!!! I probably would like everything that Stouffer's makes... and I'm sure I have tried several... but I just LOVE the stuffed peppers... and therefore never give anything else a chance!!! ;-) I am always surprised when talking to my relatives and friends... and I say how much I like Stouffer's Stuffed Green Peppers... and they respond: "Yes, that's my favorite, too!"

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Instead of Stuffed Peppers, Why Not Cabbage? The stuffing is good; but, for the most part; I'm not at all fond of eating green bell peppers; or, any kind of peppers for that matter, except ground black pepper. Even when the flavor of peppers is appropriate for a particular dish; they are next to impossible for me to digest properly. I wish Stuffed Cabbage was available, instead of peppers. I've seen it a few times as a Lean Cuisine Meal; but, it seems impossible to find...just like Stouffer's Chicken and Dumplings. Stores are not stocking their shelves with more traditional American meals, any more...even when you specifically approach the store manager, and personally ask them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hearty meal, so easy to prepare I buy Stouffer's Stuffed Green Peppers at least once a month. My husband loves these stuffed peppers, I do too, and it is a perk for me because they are easy and quick to prepare, I add a salad and some roll and butter and it is a hearty and filling meal. The peppers are cooked so well, not stringy, and the meat and sauce is just like Mom would make...we love it! A easy meal, a excellent meal, always happy to have this for dinner!
