These spicy stuffed peppers are pretty when using a combination of green and red (and/or yellow) bell peppers.

A new twist on stuffed peppers that I enjoyed. What made it interesting was the addition of cocoa powder. The only changes that I made was to use fresh peas and corn and cut back a bit on the chili powder. All in all a good recipe.
