I've cooked Bell Peppers in the crockpot before and have always burned the bottoms and sides. Thanks for giving me a solution to at least half that problem! Put the tops of the pepper in the bottom of the pot and the stuffed peppers on top of the tops! Thanks!
We loved this! The only change I made was using chicken broth and skipping the cumin -- served with green beans for a great middle-of-the-week supper. Thanks for sharing!
