Thanks for providing the picture! The detail was wonderful. I liked this recipe because it wasn't dry!

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.

These were really good. I took another reviews suggestion and put the hollowed out empty peppers in the microwave for 5 minutes in some water before I stuffed them. They cooked nicely in the oven after that. The only other substitutions I made was to use pepepr jack cheese instead of colby and used fire roated diced tomatoes instead of regular diced for a little extra kick. DH raved so we will be making these again. Thanks!

These were really good, but I wasn't crazy about the instant rice. I am going to try making them with brown rice next time and see how we like it. I may have to bake them longer but I think the end result will be more to our liking. The only change I made was to use fresh shredded Parmesan cheese instead of the Colby.

Loved, loved, loved this recipe! Oh my goodness, my husband, son, and I devoured these last night. I made a few alterations, and put spicy ground sausage instead of the beef, and added some garlic cloves - but other then that - kept it basically the same. We had one leftover, and I couldn't wait to eat it for my lunch today! So delicious!! We actually had enough mix leftover for 4 more peppers, so I froze it. Can't wait to make this again. Thanks for the recipe, it was AWESOME!!!

Used regular rice and cooked it before adding to peppers. Just as delicous as mama's!

A bit of a bland dish when prepared as directed. I added paprika, brown sugar, honey, and some chili powder to give it a bit more sweetness and flavor, which is how I've always enjoyed stuffed peppers. And... the recommended cooking time didn't soften up the peppers much at all. So this recipe was a bit of a miss for me...

Good basic recipe. Needs a little doctoring. Meat is bland. Add garlic or Adobo to meat while cooking. Simmer cooked meat and onion with the tomatoes and tomato sauce. Add 1/4 c. red wine and 1 tsp beef bouillon instead of salt. If it is too acidic, add 1 - 2 T of sugar (this will cut the acidity).
