An old friend gave me this recipe for wonderful stuffed peppers. I have made this countless times over the years and have always been pleased with the results. Would be great for Cinco de Mayo

Made some of these this weekend and they were a hit! Very easy to make and my husband took some of the leftovers and wrapped them up in flour tortillas! I used pepper jack cheese instead of the monterey jack.
