    UT Theta Chef's Note:

    A southwest twist on stuffed peppers. This is a favorite of the girls I cook for. I make it healthier by using ground turkey but beef works just as well. It's also easy to change to personal tastes. Add a salad and you have a meal.

      OUTSTANDING! I parboiled the peppers, because we don't like them crunchy and I added 1 packet of "SAZON". This filling would also make a great Tacco Pie with a cornbread crust on top.Thanks for sharing.

      Yummy! I used ground beef, added two cloves of garlic (you gotta have garlic! ;-) and skimped slightly on the cheese - so, so good! Would bake a little less than an hour the next time though, as I'd prefer it if the bell peppers still had a bit of bite to them - just a personal preference! What a great recipe, thank you for sharing!

      Very nice combination of tastes! This was the first time I've cooked with ground turkey, thought it would be bland, not so! Made for PAC Fall 2009
