N'Awlins Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe


Momma's Peppers...Whenever my mother prepares this Stuffed Bell Pepper dish, everyone in the family finds an excuse to 'drop by' for a visit to my parents' home. Being a fourth generation native New Orleanian, my mother offers a plate of food to anyone who stops by for a visit...that's why this recipe makes twelve servings!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon file powder
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ¾ pound cooked ham, finely chopped
  • 1 pound baby shrimp
  • 1 (16 ounce) package unseasoned dry bread stuffing mix
  • 6 large green bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
