Was delicious! Changed a few things when I made it but they were fantastic and I've already shared this recipe with others.
We really enjoyed these bell peppers. I precooked the rice and while the mixture simmered, I simply added about a 1/2 cup of water to keep it moist. It all worked out perfectly. My husband isn't a fan of cheese, so sometimes cooking gets a bit creative in our home. In this case, I filled his peppers before adding the cheese to the rest of the filling and everybody was happy.
This is a good, but basic recipe. I like using 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 ground spicy Italian sausage. I've even added ground veal when i can find it. I've also have used or so pasta instead of rice and added sliced mushrooms and black olives and topped with Italian cheeses.
Easily a crowd favorite. My family licked their plates clean and it had the house smelling delicious! I substituted Orzo instead of rice and baked it with the peppers resting on a bed of pasta sauce. So delicious.
Good recipe, not as good as a Greek version I make (I will soon post). The rice never fully cooked even after simmering in the skillet for longer than directed. I also preferred the mixture before the cheese was mixed in. Next time I will pre cook the rice and just top the peppers off with cheese during the end of cook time. Oh and I used an assortment of red, orange and yellow peppers instead of green (because green are my least favorite).
This recipe was great! I pre-cooked a flavored rice though. You don't even need to stuff the pepper. The filling was great by itself.
This was awesome! Increased the rice and water to 3/4 cup. Added half a beef bouillon cube, red pepper flakes, doubled the chili powder, and heaping amounts of Sazon, Adobo, and fresh garlic. Used a Mexican cheese mix as well. I love spicy! Came out awesome. Might try it again with some black beans added in. Thanks!!
Lovely dish. I haven't had this in ages. As a little girl, I don't remember liking this. Thankfully, my taste buds have matured, as I found this incredibly tasty. Personally, I would have give this 5 stars, but I was outvoted by my family. Thanks for a great recipe..I will no doubt be making this again!<br/>Update 9/7/14: I used grated, fresh cauliflower in place of rice to make this more low-carb friendly and enjoyed the texture that the cauliflower gave to the dish. I simply added the cauliflower along with drained diced tomatoes and left out the water...and baked according to recipe. Enjoyed it very much!
My family loves this recipe!!!!!
