Says Linda B. of Griffin, Georgia, “When making stuffed peppers, meat loaf or any dish with ground beef, I stir some brown sugar into the meat mixture. It brings out a delightful yet subtle flavor that’s extra special.”
MY HUSBAND likes stuffed peppers, but my old recipe made too much. I devised this recipe to accommodate just the two of us. It helps to use a small-size casserole so the peppers won't tip over while baking.
For color, I serve steamed carrots with the peppers, rounding out the meal perfectly. —Elaine Carpenter

Shannon Talmage of Alexandria, Indiana sends this family friendly, taco-flavored version of the classic stuffed bell pepper dinner. Sometimes she uses rice instead of orzo pasta; they'll both work well in this recipe.
