    This is an attractive and tasty dish. These are not your ordinary stuffed peppers. Serve on top of saffron rice with a side salad for a spicy meal.

      I am a bachelor who cares about my health. I must say these peppers are one easy, healthy, economic way to create an amazing dinner (healthy as long as you're doing some sort of anaerobic exercise)... My variation consists of a little bacon to add some depth (I don't add salt because of the bacon's salt content) and then top it with paprika before putting in the oven. It is EXCELLENT!! Low sodium, high protein, and leaves you feeling satisfied. Girls are impressed too ;) when its so simple

      Delicious! I used pepperjack cheese and added a little bit of cumin and garlic powder. We really enjoyed these. Thanks for sharing!

      This recipe is a keeper. DH and I love Mexican food and this is one recipe we will be making again and again. I went the easy way on this recipe using a can of roasted and peeled poblano chiles and rotisserie chicken that I had on hand. I also used Pepper Jack cheese to stuff the peppers and served over Spanish rice. What a delicious dinner :) Thanks for posting this tasty recipe.
