Delicious! I took the advise of other reviewers and saut?ed the onions before cooking. Also, to prevent burning of the cheese, I added it at the last 5 minutes. It was perfect! And mixed a little cheese in with the rice mixture. So good!

These had absolutely no flavor. They need some spices!

Wonderful! This is coming from someone who doesn't like a lot of vegetables. I also added cheese last five minutes and wished I had sauted the onion. I made all the filling but only cooked half one night and the other half the next night so I had fresh peppers.
