  • 6 bell peppers any color-washed and dried
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian herbs
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 cup cooked white rice or cooked brown rice
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat Air Fryer to 375 degrees F.
  • Cut a thin slice from the top of each pepper, to remove the stem like a lid. Clean the insides of the peppers by removing the veins and the seeds.
  • Straightened the bottoms of the pepper carefully not to cut too much, just enough so they can sit straight.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add the ground beef, garlic, and onions. Cook until the meat is no longer pink and nicely browned. Drain any excess grease.
  • Add in the Worcestershire sauce, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and seasonings. Stir and simmer for 5-7 minutes.
  • Add in the cooked rice and mix until well combined.
  • Scoop the mixture into the peppers, filling them just to the top.
  • Air Fry for 10-12 min, top with shredded cheese, and air fry for 5 more minutes.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
