    Theresa P's Note:

    This is a nice stuffed pepper dish that came from a friend from the past. I like this because the meat in this does not turn into a HARD meatball. Pre-cooking it first and then mixing it with the cooked rice is the secret!

      This was one delicious meal! I did modify the recipe a bit. Because i didn't have rice-a-roni, I subbed Quick Spanish Rice instead. And when cooking the ground beef, I seasoned with Taco Seasoning Mix. The filling for the pepper was so delicious, I was eating it straight before I even got it into the peppers! This is a great dish-- thanks for posting it.

      This recipe was delicious! I never thought to use flavored Rice-A-Roni. I also bought flavored diced tomatoes and didn't have to do any cutting like it stated in the directions for making the rice. I used 6 green peppers and cut them lengthwise. There was filling leftover but I froze it. This was really good!

      Very good! There is enough filling for about 9 large peppers. Next time I am going to add diced green pepper with the onion to the filling as we like more green pepper taste. Hotgrandma
