This sounds & looks so yummy but I think I'm going to modify it. It's just too high in fat & sodium.
I love this recipe. I use red bell peppers and also add a cup of black beans to the mixture.
Very good and easy to prepare. I used Uncle Ben's Ready to Serve rice. I was only able to fit 3 peppers in my slow cooker so I froze the rest of the stuffing mix for another use. I am not a fan of stuffed peppers and I even liked these. I also eased up on the hot sauce. Husband loved them.
This sounds delicious. I have a question...Is it necessary to cook the hamburger? I make stuffed peppers often and none of my recipes requires cooking the hamburger before baking the peppers.
