I came up with this one this morning for the hubby using some peppers out of the garden. It's not too hard to do, it just takes some time,and I like using the crock pot to cook the peppers instead of par-boiling them on the stove. I know it looks like a long list, but it is slightly different than some usual recipes. I hope you give it a try and give me an honest opinion of what you think! Also, this recipe uses 2 cups of white rice. I tried for an hour to get it to post and it wouldn't do it! Sorry for the confusion!
