    I used some small poblano peppers from my garden, stuffed whole and halved eggplants (scooping out the center, chopping and sautéeing with the onion), added a tablespoon of oregano as well.....delicious!

    I found this recipe outstanding, but since I am not a big fan of couscous, I made it with brown rice. Just cook the rice in the chicken stock and used the package directions. To Die For!!!

    I made these with green peppers and did not alter the recipe. Very savory and highly recommended!
