Absolutely delicious! I am in the transition from vegetarian to a ketogenic diet, and this was a great way to start off. Great flavor, the meat wasn't dry at all. Two suggestions- Don't add the extra seasoning salt. I didn't, and it tasted just salty enough with the other seasonings. Also, cut the bell peppers in half, and stuff the halves instead of a big pepper. It makes the bell pepper easier to eat, and if you're not as hungry you can have a smaller meal. Overall, a great low-carb meal!

Made this the other day to use many leftover ingredients I had on hand. It had a really great flavor! I made a couple of small adjustments to the recipe to use what I had. I used Fri Diablo pasta sauce instead of pizza sauce, and added a little bit of Pomi strained tomato to the mixture before filling the peppers as I like things a little more saucy. The green peppers seemed a little to firm for me when cooked as instructed - next time I will precook them a little in the microwave to soften before filling. None the less - still a great recipe!

My husband said these were the best peppers he ever ate, and we have had many through the years. First of all, I did not use 4 peppers since there are only 2 of us. I had some huge ones in my garden, so split 2 of them. Used grass fed ground beef, and instead of pizza sauce, used tomato sauce (small can) in which I made homemade pizza sauce (basil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper). This is what I added to the top of the peppers. Then topped with mixture of cheddar/mozarella, pre shredded. Spices I kept as specified. Also baked for much longer than specified, about 45 minutes to an hour, which I think helped to meld the flavors. They were perfect, and the peppers were still firm and not soggy. Served with low carb mashed potatoes as DH is diabetic. Definitely will be making again! Thanks for this wonderful recipe!

This felt super decadent, but knowing it was pretty healthy made it extra enjoyable! The little bit of cheese on top was perfect, just enough to make these seem naughty! I loved all the flavours with the chicken and baked peppers are just the best!

My Husband and I enjoyed this meal very much. I did change a few things. I substituted hamburger instead of the turkey. I also used spaghetti sauce instead of pizza sauce. In addition to the tablespoon of sauce used on each pepper in the recipe, I also mixed in about 1/4 cup in the meat mixture. Next time I would soften the bell peppers a bit more. But, overall a great low carb alternative to the traditional stuffed bell pepper recipe. A bit of light sour cream on the side was good too:)

We loved this! The only changes i made was to use 1/2lb each italian sausage, minced jalapeno and omitted the pizza sauce entirely. It was so delish my 8 year old ate it all up and asked for seconds! Thanks for a great dinner!

This was delicious! I only had yellow peppers but I'm glad I did - they added a sweet taste to the dish. I didn't have any diced tomatoes in a can so I used fresh tomatoes and added some tomato sauce to the meat mixture before stuffing the peppers. I also used additional tomato sauce on the top before the cheddar and mozzarella cheese. I will definitely make this again and again!

I made this with ground sirloin but since the seasonings are so delicious, anything would taste awesome with it! You don't even need to measure anything exactly. I did the same thing as the other poster and used a can of diced with green chiles. It did not really make it spicy, just a bit more flavorful perhaps. My boyfriend ate his over rice but since I'm low carb, I ate it as is. This is great even if you don't feel like stuffing a green pepper and using the oven. Thanks!

Five star recipe all the way! I made two batches. One was as directed above and then I mixed it up a bit to make it spicier. In the spicier mix I swapped out the ingredients per the recipe for petite diced tomatoes with chiles and topped it with pepper jack cheese. It gave the recipe a nice kick and tasted awesome. As I mentioned I also made the recipe as written and it was great too. I really loved both versions of the recipe. Thanks so much I haven't made a recipe off zaar (food.com) in a while that I have liked this much. If you are contemplating trying it go for it. It is worth it.

A few notes to add. As soon as I cooked up the beef mixture I took a taste and thought it was too salty. After cooking it in the peppers I thought it was perfect. Also, the prep time is a bit understated. It took me over 45 minutes to put the dish together. Now I did double the recipe but it shouldn't effect prep time that much. Still it was well worth the effort.
