    Misplaced Texan's Note:

    I compiled this recipe the other night after finding 3 recipes that I liked. None had exactly what I was looking for so I combined the 3 and this is what I got. I had to add the 3rd can of sauce because I like to spoon a little over the top of my peppers when they are done.

      Thanks for the delicious recipe!! I blanched the peppers before stuffing them so they would cook faster and more evenly. Used a splash of A1 and some Frank's Red Hot to give it a little kick. Also chopped the top of the pepper that I cut off and tossed it into the mix. Super yummy and will DEFINITELY be making again, especially the way our green peppers are growing in the garden. Thanks again!

      wonderful!! I cooked the empty peppers in the micro using my deep covered baker for 5 minutes then filled them and put them back in the micro for 12 more minutes. They were the best stuffed peppers I've ever made.
