This as a great alternative to the more Italian style stuffed peppers. I used Chorizo for the sausage and put a little pepper jack cheese on top. Very delicious! This also made so much, I was able to make two pans and save one back for another day.

I was looking for a spicier not sweet Stuffed Bell Pepper and Theresa yours fit the bill. I halfed a lot of the ingredients the ground sausage I used Homemade Smoked Pork Sausage and Ground Chuck and added 1 tsp La. Hot Sauce and Worcestshire; in rice added 2 tsp Salt-Free Chicken Bouillion Powder. Have put in my cookbooks and will email friends and family on the great flavor! Thanks for posting! Justmez2

This was a nice stuffed pepper recipe, but I prefer the Cook's Illustrated one posted by Heather Lazar to this one. We added grated Mexican cheese in the last 5 minutes of cooking, which I thought added even more flavor.
