Dee-lish! This was such a quick to make recipe. It was like having a wonderful stir-fry in a sweet pepper cup! The taste is wonderful! I liked the addition of the pine nuts. It was a nice change from the traditional ground beef stuffed peppers. The chicken and rice made for a great taste, when combined with the spices and the red pepper. Serving this was sooo pleasing to the eye...great presentation! was made in a crockpot...what could be easier for busy cooks?

These peppers were wonderfull!! and so easy. I followed the receipe to a tee because of the contest and was very pleased with the results. We particularly enjoyed the corn with the rice and pine nuts with the chicken, a nice change from the usual grouond beef. Nice combination, and the spices finished it nicely. We used the whole teaspoon of hot chili flakes, they gave it a nice bite with the cumin. I made it last night and DH turned them on this afternoon, how nice to come home to!! 5 hours was perfect, except DH accidently had it on high for the first hour, in any case they turned out perfect and looked so pretty, served with a spinach salad and a dinner roll. The only strange thing about it was that I had a lot of stuffing left over, maybe my peppers were smaller, but that was ok, it made a great lunch heated in the microwave. Thanks for sharing, I will be making these again.

Great recipe. I deviated a little by using chopped hazelnuts and wild rice. I also had a lot of stuffing left over, even though I filled 5 peppers. Next time I'll cook for 4 hours--2 of the peppers fell apart well I removed them from the crock! Very tasty nonetheless!
