    Karen=^..^='s Note:

    What I love most about these stuffed peppers is that the meat goes in uncooked, so it forms kind of a solid "meatball" in the pepper. I think these are much better than the stuffed peppers where the meat is cooked first and stays "loose". If someone in your family does not like peppers, make some meatballs from the mixture and drop them in the pot along with the stuffed peppers. Enjoy!

      This was a great way to cook peppers on the stovetop! They turned out nice and saucy, and the meat was done right on time just as promised. The flavor reminds me of good homestyle cooking- perhaps many "Moms" made peppers that tasted quite like this. I know it tasted kind of like my Moms peppers! Good comfort food! Thanks for a nice recipe!

      I loved it! I was looking for a recipe like my mom use to make and this is pretty close. The only thing is she did not precook the onions but they tasted just the same and she didnt add tomatoes, although I like the addition of tomatoes. This is good ole comfort food at its best and I will make it exactly as written again, for sure. Thanks Karen for a great recipe!

      I usually make my peppers with only tomato soup but have now found a new favorite addition--the tomatoes but will cut back tomatoes to 14 oz can~~~32 oz way to many tomatoes for me.
