I am doing weight watchers...I exchanged the ground beef for turkey..didn't add the rice...swapped cheddar cheese for low fat cheese and didn't use the broth... becouse I didn't have it...and topped it with sour cream..The original was 13 points... my version was 7 points.
These were a nice change to the recipe I normally use for stuffed peppers. Pure comfort food here. The only changes I made were to use fresh garlic and dry mustard. Thank you for sharing your recipe! *reviewed for Spring 2007 Pick A Chef *
We loved these! And the filling really does taste like cheeseburgers! I used regular yellow mustard because that is what I had on hand and I skipped the broth as well--but instead dropped the halved peppers in boiling water for 5 minutes as I always do with stuffed peppers. Nice change from the traditional stuffed peppers!
Oh, but this is an excellent dish. I used beef that I had already browned with garlic salt, left out the onions as I don't eat those, used homemade marinara sauce instead of tomato paste, and I left out the mustard, which I don't eat either (can you tell I'm a picky eater?). I also left out the broth and just sprayed my baking pan with non-stick spray, as I like my peppers to still be firm when I eat them. I added some chili powder to the filling. A very satisfying meal. I actually just finished eating and enjoyed it so much I had to review it immediately. Thanks very much for the recipe. I think it would be a good filling for zucchini and tomatoes as well as the peppers.
