Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Debbwl

These mild flavored peppers have a filling that is sweet and somewhat reminiscent of the sweet tamales we get during the holidays. Cook and prep time do Not include time need to make the corn bread as I quite often make it either the night before. If in a time crunch you could always buy a pre-made 9x9 corn bread.

What a nice change for stuffed peppers. The flavor is mild but good. Not sure that I cared for the raisins in this though so I would probably omit it next time. I used 2Bleu's recipe for Jiffy Mix Cornbread Made Even Better #454971. This made a tasty meal served with some Mexican rice on the side. Thank you for sharing.
