I just love stuffed peppers. After searching the internet I settled on this recipe. First of all I found that the amount of meat (stuffing) we ended up with was too much for the 8 peppers that I used (2 each red , yellow, orange and green). Froze enough stuffing to use for another 8 pepper meal. I also chopped up the tops of the peppers and sauteed with the onions, of which I used 1 and a half medium large. Also used one 15 oz. tin of Hunt's tomato sauce, one tin of Campbell s tomato soup and some left over tomato sauce from another recipe (about a cup and a half). Also maybe a cup and a half or more of water. Was very tasty and will make again - BUT I also used the cup and a half of catchup called for in the recipe. Came out too sweet for my family's taste, although we did like it, but would like it more with less sweetness. Will cut the catchup down to maybe 1/2 cup or leave it out altogether next time. Only had slightly less than 1 cup of sour cream on hand (200 grams, where cup is 230 grams), so used that with heaping tablespoon of flour. Worked fine, although I saved enough sauce without the sour cream (just undert 3 cups) for another go at this recipe. I think the recipe is very flexible that way.

They was wonderful, but I left out catsup,egg,pork and 2 peppers. I used 2 cans tomato soup and 1 8oz. can tomato sauce. And cut water to about 3/4 cup. I also added garlic to meat. It made plenty of sauce, and I used crockpot. I have a long oval one that worked great!
This was so good~! I have to admit though, I substituted V8 for the sauce and soup. I also took the edible parts of the tops of the bell peppers (I bought orange, red, green, and yellow), and chopped them up, and added them to the tomato sauce. It all worked extremely well. I added a little cornstarch and water at the end to thicken it up a bit. This made a lot of sauce, so I took the leftover stuffed peppers and chopped them up. I mixed them into the sauce, and it made a fantastic soup the next day to go with a crusty loaf of bread. Great and versatile recipe, thanks!
Great flavor in filling. Also like it that it is made on stove top. Made too much gravy, so will leave soup out next time. Don't like to use canned soups in recipes, anyway.
