"I have been making this recipe for 25 years but I have never written it down. I got the recipe from my best friends mother in law. I religiously made it exactly as she had given it to me. I ran into her a few years ago and told her how I had made her recipe all these years. She told me she never puts the same ingredients in twice. She just uses what she has on hand. LOL."

"Ta dahhh! These peppers were so flavorful - even my 14yo DS gobbled them up! I used half a pound of meat since there was only three of us and pre-cooked/crumbled bacon. The chili powder is what really makes this dish shine! Instead of parboiling the peppers, I broiled them for a few minutes upside down until they were just starting to blacken, then flipped, filled and baked at 350 for 15 minutes, turned out just right without heating the kitchen for tooo long on this hot summer night."
"What an awesome recipe, I made it for my wife and daughter and they loved it. I was thinking my daughter would hem and haw and not want to eat it but she ate every bite of it."
"Just made these and the fam loved them! So glad I doubled the recipe! Love the non-rice style of stuffed peppers."
"I never made stuffed bell peppers before and this one was a big hit. I followed the recipe exactally. My husband loved the taste. I enjoyed the taste, but next time I will cook my bacon before I put it in. I did not feel the pieces of bacon were crispy enough for me. Thnks for sharing."
"Wow! It seems a lot of hubby's are loving this recipe. Well mine did too! He really enjoyed the lack of tomato flavor. (Most have such a tomato taste to them). He enjoyed the added bacon and cheese but did miss the rice a tad. This is so easy to prepare and the flavor is just so different from what you are expecting that you truly end up tasting every bite because you just can not believe it! What a joy to eat. This is a keeper. Thanks for posing. :)"
"This is so totally different from the way we make Stuffed Bell Peppers but we LOVED IT!!!!! (I have never heard of putting bacon, chili powder, and cheese in stuffed peppers before.) But I must say, what a pleasant surprise. I can guarantee you that I will be making this over and over and over again. Thanks for sharing it, Lavender Lynn!!! (P.S. Thank YOU so much for making one of my recipes (Taco Stew)."
"These were delicious. DH loved them. The bacon adds a lot of flavour to the ground beef mixture. I prepared this as written with the exception of forgetting to add the bread which wasn't missed at all. Made for PRMR Tag."
"These are great! My family loved these! I made 10 stuffed peppers and my guys ate every drop! My dh said these are the best stuffed peppers he's ever had! Thanks for sharing this keeper which will be on our table on a regular basis!"
"OH MY GOODNESS! I loved this! I was a little concerned when I browned the burger, bacon, garlic, and onion because it didn't seem the bacon was going to be "done," but my fears vanished after finishing these in the oven. These are quite a bit like my mother's recipe except this peppers have the added plus of BACON and CHEESE! Like Paula Deen, I truly believe everything is better with bacon! I didn't have tomato sauce so subbed Spicy V8 and it came out great. Also, next time I might add 1-11/2 T dry mustard just for heat. Lynn, these are sooooooo good. Thanks for a real keeper--throwing out Mom's recipe now--shhhhhhh,,,, don't tell her! :) Pamela--made for ZWT5-Genies of Gourmet UPDATED: added the five stars--meant to the first time and somehow didn't. This recipe is way more than 5 stars!"
