These were delicious and filling. I love stuffed peppers and love to find all kinds of alternatives to the traditional version. This was perfect and very easy to make. I added a little cumin to the stuffing mixture, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. The peppers were nicely cooked but still had a slight crunch, which I like. Great recipe; thanx!
