I was unable to find this "seasoning" blend where I live either. I checked 3 different stores. But I suppose I could just dice up my own peppers, onions, and celery. You could chop up a large batch and store it in individual freezer bags in the freezer, to cut down on prep time for a variety of different meals. I always love to save time in the kitchen, especially if I had a long day at work and just want to relax.

I love making slow cooker stuffed peppers, but I've never tried it with rice. I'm intrigued!

what is "1 (10-ounce) package frozen seasoning blend"??????

What is in the "frozen seasoning blend" Need to know so can recognize it in frozen food section of supermarket. Is it dry? Wet? Animal? Vegetable?

Frozen seasoning blend is a combination of onions, celery, green & red peppers and parsley flakes. You can find it near the vegetables in the freezer section of your grocery store. Enjoy!

I have an easier recipe. You take a box of rice a roni spanish rice, uncooked, mix it with your hamburger, stuff the peppers, and place in large casserole. I then use a can of tomato juice to pour over the peppers, and then bake at 325* for a couple of hours.....YUUUMMMMM

Is the quantity of ground beef for your recipe 1/2 pound?

Tomato soup works really well too.....just dilute it down!

I do the same thing as you do. It's wonderful!

How long would it take to slow cook frozen stuffed peppers please.

I think my husband would love this - how do I make it???

I would like to try this recipe, but there isn't any instructions?

You can find the frozen seasoning blend in the frozen vegetable section with the frozen onions and peppers.

Would love to make this but where are the instructions? Also, where can I find the frozen seasoning blend in Ft. Worth, TX.

Although the ingredients sounds "ooohhh soooo gooood", you left out the instructions :(

There doesn't seem to be any instructions with this recipe and I haven't heard of frozen seasoning blend......?

seasoning blend is in all stores. or cut up onions, bell peppers ( red & green, & a tad of chives, parsley very fine. you can also put a tad celery salt. but, in the stores it will say frozen onions & bell peppers in a bag.
