I don't like bell peppers, but this was freakin' great! The family absolutely loved it and I am definately going to cook this again. I'm not a really experienced cook, but this was really easy!

AWESOME! The only thing I changed was that I made them the night before. I don't know if that changed the taste or not, but they were really good. I was a little iffy about the dry dressing, but I think that is what made the dish. I will be making this again!

These turned out very well, and they're quick and easy to make. The seasoning was just right. I'll definitely make them again. I made this dish for my finicky, meat-n-potato-loving, convalescent granny, and she gobbled it up. She said the peppers needed some cheese, though. For seasoning, I used Durkee Grill Creations Italian Herb marinade mix. I wanted to freeze some of the filling, since it made way too much, so I made it with just the beef, rice, and seasonings. I froze half, then stirred some sauce into the rest and stuffed the peppers. To use the frozen filling, I thawed it out, microwaved it, stirred in more tomato sauce, and stuffed more peppers. It turned out just as good as the first batch.
