I like this recipe because it doesn't have rice in it. It is very easy to make and if you like the overall flavor of somelike like gyros with tzatziki, I think you will like this as well.

My husband and I liked this a lot! I am not fond of rice in stuffed green peppers so this was a great find. I did add one third of a can of tomato soup to the meat mixture and poured the remaining two thirds of the soup over the stuffed green peppers. The measurements of the seasonings was perfect. Oh, I did use ground turkey.
