I have made this recipe twice so far and it is a family favorite. When I make our weekly menu and ask for ideas, this is always suggested by my boys! I use quinoa in place of the rice and uses summer savory and smoked paprika in place of the spice packet. Thanks for this incredible recipe!

Every summer I use my vegetable garden green peppers to make this receipe--several times! This is so delicious! You have to try this recipe. So much tastier than beef stuffed peppers.
