Reviews for Cheesy Stuffed Peppers
"Top-notch recipe! Other than adding some Cajun seasoning and the diced-up useable parts from the tops of the peppers that I'd cut off (I added these to the onions and meat mixture), we left the recipe as-is. This is a great way to get extra veggies into your meal."
"Absolutely excellent taste!! Will make again and again. Thanks for sharing this recipe."
"Great alternative to Stuffed Peppers with mushy prepers"
"Super easy to make and so delicious! Comfort food for sure! Will definitely make again and again."
"Instead of beef I added ground lamb instead. This made the meal much lighter."
"these peppers are really good and so simple to make. the best part is you can freeze them and they taste even better the next time around. YUM!"
"very good and tasty. I liked that you cooked and drained the beef before baking it in the pepper. My husband loves stuffed peppers but always complained that it was too greasy. Not with this recipe. I think I would add a little more heat next time or maybe add some ketchup and mustard since it kind of tastes like a cheeseburger!"
"Delicious and pretty easy to make."
