Stuffed Bell Peppers

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by mammamia 2

Try using red, yellow, as well as green peppers for a nice presentation. What makes this recipe interesting are the spices--chili pepper and a hint of ground cloves. Sounds strange, but it's delicious.

These are good! I liked the suggestion of cutting off the bottoms to make them sit up straight. I put the bottoms inside the pepper so there was no hole and the stuffing wouldn't run out while cooking. I had enough stuffing to stuff my pepper tops for mini stuffed peppers! I used Muir Glen fire roasted diced tomatoes and this gave it even more flavor!! Thanks for this great stuffed pepper recipe!
