I used 2 c. cooked brown rice, then added it in with the other ingredients, and used Pepper Jack cheese instead. I baked them in the oven for 1 hr 10 minutes at 350 instead of using the crockpot. They were delish, and I will be making them again to bring to my sisters! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Boomie! Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game 3/09 Linda

These are delicious. Very simple to make and I love that they can be made in the crock pot version. The peppers were easy to stuff, too, since they were not cooked yet. They softened up really nice in the crock pot, too. Thanks for sharing! Made for Gimme 5 tag.
