    I followed the instructions for the crock pot version. It turned to mush in 6 hours on low. I made it for a friend and was very embarrassed to bring her green pepper soup. I do not know what happened. I followed the baking recipie and the meat tasted good but will not do it in the crock pot again.

    I don't like bell peppers, but this was freakin' great! The family absolutely loved it and I am definately going to cook this again. I'm not a really experienced cook, but this was really easy!

    AWESOME! The only thing I changed was that I made them the night before. I don't know if that changed the taste or not, but they were really good. I was a little iffy about the dry dressing, but I think that is what made the dish. I will be making this again!

    These turned out very well, and they're quick and easy to make. The seasoning was just right. I'll definitely make them again. I made this dish for my finicky, meat-n-potato-loving, convalescent granny, and she gobbled it up. She said the peppers needed some cheese, though. For seasoning, I used Durkee Grill Creations Italian Herb marinade mix. I wanted to freeze some of the filling, since it made way too much, so I made it with just the beef, rice, and seasonings. I froze half, then stirred some sauce into the rest and stuffed the peppers. To use the frozen filling, I thawed it out, microwaved it, stirred in more tomato sauce, and stuffed more peppers. It turned out just as good as the first batch.

    Made the oven version in my shallow dutch oven instead of a casserole. Made as written and absolutely delicious!

    These were excellent! We used ground pork and substituted the tomato sauce for garlic and onion spaghetti sauce, added some boursin cheese, italian seasoning and some adobo seasoning then sprinkled these with mozzarella cheese.

    I made the baked version of this the other night and it turned out awesome! For more Italian flavor I added a few links of well drained sweet Italian sausage to the mix as well as some Penzeys Tuscan Sunset seasoning. I had to substitute some crused tomatoes for tomato sauce since I only had 3 8 oz cans and it worked out great! Like some of the others I melted slices of pepper jack cheese on a few and provolone on the others and it browned really pretty and tasted great! Thank you so much for the recipe and I will be making this again - maybe next time with red bell peppers instead of green!
