    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    This excellent recipe took me many experimental tries before I came up with a delicious tasting filling. The preparation and cooking time may be somewhat lengthy but is worth the effort.

      I made this exactly according to the recipe - couldn't stop eating the filling before putting them in oven. Delicious!!!!! Best stuffed peppers EVER! I can't imagine why some of the comments say that people doubled the cooking time on the rice! Rice takes 20 minutes to cook, period! LOL

      Uncle Bill..yer a culinary genious ! This recipe makes the best stuffed peppers I have ever tasted. Using an assortment of peppers makes for an eye catching presentastion. Although I have been using this recipe for a least 1 1/2 years I have been negligent on submitting a rateing..for that I'm ashamed. The only additions I have made to this already perfect dish is, when available,I use diced fresh tomatoes from my garden,I add three leaves of chopped fresh sweet basil and four tablespoons chopped fresh parsley...not that it needs it but I do need to use items from my garden ~grin~ The carrots give a suttle sweetness. Last fall I froze the last of the peppers ( mix of red and green) from the garden that were about the size of a walnut. For Christmas dinner I stuffed them using this recipe. I arranged them on a plater of fresh spinach leaves. They were not only delicious but beautiful. Thanks for sharing a materpience from your recipe file ! Samijo
